Brief Bio: 

Victor C. A. Nweke is based at the University of Calabar, Nigeria, where he is currently a research/editorial assistant. His major research interests include Logic, African philosophy, Intercultural philosophy and Cross-Cultural Relations. He has authored some articles and presented papers in these areas in many academic fora within and outside Nigeria. His works mainly border on the innovative development and application of philosophic principles and systems from the African Place to confront the challenge of cross-cultural misunderstanding, peacebuilding and sustainable development in Africa and across the globe. He is a foundational member of the Conversational School of Philosophy (CSP), and a Research Assistant to the Convenor of CSP, Jonathan Chimakonam Okeke Ph.D. Victor sees himself as a “Conversational Philosopher” that approaches, interrogates and converses with works and authors in other Philosophical Traditions from the ambience of African philosophy as conceived by the CSP. He is also a member of academic bodies such as the Nigerian Philosophical Association (NPA), International Society for African Philosophy and Studies (ISAPS), Canadian Philosophical Association (CPA), the Association for Informal Logic and Critical Thinking (AILACT), etc. He just defended his M.A thesis titled "The Ontological Foundation of Logic and its effects on Cross-Cultural Understanding: A Consideration of Chris Ijiomah's Harmonious Monism." The basic contention of the thesis is that strict fidelity to the procedural rules of formal logic as a necessary and sufficient tool for assessing the quality of knowledge claims across all cultures often ignites diverse forms of cross-cultural misunderstanding. In view of this, the thesis argue for the use of an alternative philosophical logic for cross-cultural understanding articulated from the African place. His unique contribution to the HASTAC program will consists of introducing the basic challenges to education in postcolonial Africa as well novel ideas articulated from the African place. He will also work on a DH project with his University through the CSP.
