This is an excellent opportunity for Indian academia to make use of Prof Niang's presence in India. He is traveling to India on Shastri Mobility Programme of the Shastri Institute funded by MHRD. Last year, he offered a course at JNU under the GIAN programme.

Also, we need to discuss topics of lectures. if you could confirm quickly, I would then proceed to make the final arrangements on my side.

We would like to invite Dr. Sada Niang to National Law University, Odisha for a 1-2 day workshop on ''A Comparative Study of the representation of law in Indian vis-a-vis that in Carribean and African cinema". 

It would be a privilege for NLU Odisha to host Prof. Niang. We will offer local hospitality and the economy airfare. 


We look forward to his confirmation of dates at the earliest.

Thank you for your invitation.   I would be delighted to accept your invitation, but you should know that I am specialist of francophone African literature and cinemas.  I am able to give lectures and workshops on the portrayal of law, lawyers and legal matters in francophone African literature and cinemas, but would not be able to incorporate the Indian side of this topic. My expertise could respond to the question: "How is civil society law portrayed in francophone African literatures and cinemas (clips could be included in the lecture)?"; or “what are the relationships between customary and civil legal frameworks as portrayed in Francophone African literature and cinemas”. My availability for now  is August 10-11, or maybe August 28-29.   
August 10-11 would fit better, but the  later date could be negotiated provided we act fast.
