Abstract

Historicizing Humanistic Scholarship for National Development in Nigeria

By

Professor Victor Ukaogo

 

Introduction

It is a great honor and indeed a privilege to have been invited by the organizers of this gathering to deliver this lecture on this great day of public book presentation of the well grounded-humanist, scholar of no mean repute and stature and indeed one of the most outstanding erudite professors of our time -Professor U.D Anyanwu. I have chosen to speak on 'Historicizing Humanistic Scholarship for National Development in Nigeria' because it captures the theme that defines his scholarship in his decades of academic engagement in several universities across the country. The issue of humanities and its value has dominated intellectual discourse over a period of time with a section insisting on its worthlessness in the workplace and the advocates in diverse climes approving its study just for the sake of it. No matter how it is denied there are immense benefits in humanities education especially in the contemporary world of intelligence and foreign policy given the reality that governments the world over rely on the expertise of historical, political, and cultural experts to show direction to what next the government would do to remain global reckoning. I probably may not be able to say much to this gathering except I situate my discussion on the parlous state of the humanities in Nigeria as we celebrate this one moment of humanities' finest hour in Nigeria.
