A session in memory of Tope (Sky) Omoniyi, SS22, Auckland, June 2018

In Auckland, New Zealand on June 27 at Sociolinguistics Symposium 22, a colloquium will take place honouring the memory and work of Tope Omoniyi.

Link to abstracts.

“The late Tope Omoniyi, whose sudden death prevented him presenting a plenary address at this conference, was widely known for his pioneering work with the late Joshua A. Fishman in the development of the study of the sociology of language and religion and in his contributions to the role of English in public health intervention in Africa. In this colloquium, some of his many followers and friends will pay tribute to his work and influence.”
