Kyle Wilson developed “Mental Realities of the Multi-Culture: Multiple Othering in Chinua Achebe’s Things Fall Apart” in my Seminar in Literature: Post-Colonial Literatures and Theory in the fall of 2008. First, he presented it as part of the conference presentations in class. Everyone agreed that Kyle Wilson had developed something truly interesting: an original work of scholarship on Achebe’s most famous, most frequently taught novel. After the presentation, I encouraged Kyle, along with his classmates, to submit a conference proposal to the National Association of African American Studies and Affiliates. Kyle submitted his proposal and was invited to present the paper in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in February 2009. Subsequently, I recommended Kyle’s work for College of Humanities and Fine Arts 2009 Graduate Student Research Symposium, where it was quite favorably received.
