Dr. Adeline Igho Apena
I am a social-economic historian of Africa specializing on entrepreneurial development. I have extensive research and teaching experiences in African history, including African women's history and issues in global women. Though Africa is the major area of my educational training and research, I have expertise in European/global history. My educational qualifications include M. A. in European International History from the London School of Economics and Political Science of the University of London, and a Ph.D in African History from the University of Lagos, Nigeria. My academic experiences include online course development, instructin and publication.
My book publications include Colonization, Commerce and Entrepreneurship in Nigeria, 1914-1960. The Western Delta and a broard range of journal/book articles including Africana Women and Liberation. I am widely traveled and have lived and worked in different regions of the world. Course/curriculum development has been a major interest and an important aspect of my professional accomplishments. Also conferencing is an important professional activity that has enhanced my class delivery and has given me opportunities to travel broadly and speak in national and international forums.
My hobbies include traveling, music and dance; reggae appeals most to me and Bob Marley is my favorite artist. Fish and okra vegetable stew and cassava dough as well as yams and plantain are food I cannot do without while fish and festival is a major delight.
