Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie will receive an honorary doctorate degree from the Catholic University of Louvain on April 28th, 2022.  

Who is Chimanda Ngozi Adichie?

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is a Nigerian novelist, short story writer, and nonfiction author.

The most famous of a procession of critically renowned young anglophone authors is successful in introducing a new generation of readers to African literature, notably in her second home, the United States, according to The Times Literary Supplement.

Catholic University of Louvain

Founded by Pope Martin V in 1425, the Catholic University of Louvain, frequently abbreviated as UCLouvain, is one of the oldest Catholic institutions in Europe and the biggest French-speaking university in Belgium.  

It has campuses at six different places in Belgium, with 15 different schools and colleges. Vitold Belevich, a mathematician, and Queen Mathilde of Belgium are among the school’s most prominent alumni. 

The Academic Council deems Adichie’s writing “exceptional in many ways and particularly encouraging for our university community,” according to University Rector Vincent Blondel.  

Adichie epitomizes the “values that we intend to convey to our students, instructors, researchers, and the entire university community, The topic for the upcoming academic year at the institution is ‘The Fragility of Truth.’ Adichie’s career, which alternates between fiction and the reality of fights against tyranny of many types, exemplifies this subject.” He added.

This will be Adichie’s 16th honorary doctorate degree, awarded by the Catholic University of Louvain. She has received honorary degrees from Yale University, the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Edinburgh, Duke University, Georgetown University, and Johns Hopkins University, among others.
