Professor of English Vincent Odamtten recently participated in two conferences. In May he presented “Story-Telling as Performance: From No Sweetness Here to Diplomatic Pounds” at the “Gender, Creative Dissidence and Discourses of African Diaspora Colloquium in Honor of Ama Ata Aidoo” at the Interdisciplinary Humanities Center, University of California at Santa Barbara.
He also took part in a roundtable, “Not Just for Children Anymore – A Personal Perspective on the Influence of Ama Ata Aidoo’s Work,” at the 38th annual African Literature Association Conference at the Southern Methodist University in Dallas in April.
