Special Collection Of Articles

Lagos Studies Association

To mark the 4th conference of the Lagos Studies Association, we have gathered a collection of articles that have grown out of or respond to conversations at this conference. Established in 2017, the Lagos Studies Association is an international, interdisciplinary organisation of academic and non-academic practitioners whose interest focus is on Lagos and its peoples. The Lagos Studies Association members include scholars, students, activists, artists, teachers, donors, policymakers, and development professionals.

Through exchanges between academic and non-academic practitioners, the organisation seeks to deepen the rigour of contemporary scholarship as well as to encourage the integration of critical and thought-provoking questions into non-academic projects on Lagos. This year sees the launch of the LSA Women’s Caucus, through the inauguration of a peer and mentoring network that addresses in particular the expressed needs of women scholars in the Nigerian academy. The collection of articles also showcases recent scholarship on Nollywood, to accompany the 2019 keynote address by Jonathan Haynes titled “Nollywood’s Lagos” and includes an issue on the influential career and writings of Professor Biodun Jeyifo.

Please explore the articles below, which are free to access via this page until the end of August 2019’
