2010 International Conference on Islam in Nigeria since Independence

Posted by todaymedia on January 21, 2010 under Africa, Religion | Be the First to Comment

Organiser: Department of Arabic and Islamic Studies,

University of Ibadan, Ibadan, Nigeria

Proposed Date: 19-21 April, 2010

Even though  there is panoply of information on the history and the spread of the religion of Islam in Nigeria and even though the of the religion in the socio-economic and political development of Nigeria has been recognized and applauded and  knowledge and information about the roles and contributions of the Muslims to the weal and woe of Nigeria since independence, however, are hard to come by. The need is equally felt for an Inside- and Outside-In critical appraisal of the destiny, fortune and “futures” of Islam and Nigerian Muslims as the country begins its march to its centenary. How does it feel to be a Nigerian and a Muslim? What do these categories imply with reference to the idea of Nigeria and of what impacts have they been to the country since 1960? How do Muslims in post-independence Nigeria view the public sphere? To what extent is their idea of the sphere a reflection of Islam’s theologico-jurisprudential constructs or the Western conception of same? How and where might we begin to “locate” Muslims in Nigeria ‘s public sphere particularly since the country attained flag independence from the British in 1960 and of what value has been their participation in it? How might a study of Islam and the Muslim’s role in Nigeria ‘s public sphere since 1960 positively impact the larger Nigerian society? What are the fissures, contradictions and paradoxes that could be observed in-between Islam in the text and Islam in context in Nigeria ? How have Islamic practices in Nigeria reinforced the argument for the separation between or the union of the state and religion? What is the fact or fiction of the Muslims’ majority/minority status in Nigeria ‘s demographic, political, economic and intellectual/educational space and of what effect has that been on the Nigerian state since 1960? How might Nigerian Muslims evolve a more constructive nexus between Islamic theory and the existential realities of Nigeria ‘s public sphere?

How do trends within Islam in Nigeria in the contemporary period reflect the socio-cultural and econo-political global flows and how has the latter, in turn, become impacted by the former since independence?


The Department of Arabic and Islamic Studies invites papers on any of the following sub-themes or on any other theme that may fall within the general concept of the conference:

  • History of Islam in Nigeria since 1960
  • Muslims in Nigeria ‘s Public Sphere since 1960
  • Islam and the Sokoto Caliphate since 1960
  • Islam, Muslims and the Nigerian Education sector since 1960
  • Qur’anic Education in Nigeria since 1960
  • Arabic Culture in Nigeria Since 1960 Read more of this article »

Download the application form (PDF)

Course Description

This course is designed to prompt an exploration of common behaviours and attitudes towards gender differences. It will present facts and figures about the situation of women and men in our society today – and references from key documents that highlight policies formulated to address gender concerns. Recent events have shown that if governments are serious about achieving the Millennium Development Goals, MDG’s, it is essential that gender be taken into account for all the goals. Gender equality in the MDGs touches almost exclusively on the area of education, and research does show the importance of equality in this area, but this is not sufficient. This e-learning course will empower the participants with tools and sector-specific guidelines for gender mainstreaming in their various institutions and development planning. It will further improve the abilities of participants to reduce gender inequalities in their various homes, organisation and communities.

The course also features a number of exercises and reflective activities designed to explore basic gender concepts and enhance gender analysis skills, which can be applied in the formulation of policies, the design of programmes, and the exercise of evaluation. Read more of this article »
