International Conference on Biafra-Nigeria Civil War: Our Stories and Lessons Learnt

Biafra Conference Abstracts


Marquette University, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, September 25-26, 2009

In 1967, Nigeria was plunged into a brutal civil war with secessionist Biafra that lasted for 30 months, and ended with the surrender of Biafra and a re-assimilation of Biafrans into Nigeria. On the eve of the 40th anniversary of that war, the organizers would like to invite submissions for a conference focusing primarily on the Biafran side of that civil war. The conference seeks to reexamine the civil war from the perspective of non military support of the war effort, and the lingering human costs of that conflict. The conference also welcomes papers related to violence directed against specific ethnicities and groups in Africa, especially where it allows for comparative analyses.
