I know I sound a bit Hermione Granger, but it's fascinating studying ones culture from another perspective. Mind you, considering the range of the culture, that doesn't really need to be said.

[Igbo] Culture and Socialization

General info about the Igbo people

I am so glad we're going back home to Nigeria this summer, if only because there are a tonne of books I have to read including this one, titled 'Igbo Philosophy of Law'. The only bad thing is that we're spending a world record of five weeks (as opposed to the usual month and a half) this time, which isn't long enough. Oh, the irony that when I've finally got something I really need to go home to do, I'll be spending the shortest time there.

Still, I'm sure there'll be lots of stuff in the University library if this is anything to go by. I know practically nothing about traditional Igbo poetry, so this is an intriguing first step in curing this particular area of ignorance.

On another note, it's times like this I realise I need to get into reading more fantasy/sci-fiRead more... )
