DAAS Africa Workshop with Babajide Ololajulo (University of Ibadan)

Unequal colonial encounter and epistemological imagination in Contemporary Nigeria

This talk engages with posthumous paternity, a creative kinship practice of the Yoruba ethnicity of southern Nigeria. It explores how the practice, which survived the repugnancy doctrine of colonial jurisprudence, attests to the multiple interconnections and possibilities in the Yoruba endogenous epistemologies. The talk also explores the similar ideological premises of Yoruba posthumous births and assisted reproduction technology.
