The scientific committee of the Laboratory of Boology and Integral Development (LaBooId) of the campus of Abomey-Calavi launched this Monday, October 31, the call for papers of posthumous mixtures of Professor Jean Marie Apovo, inventor of the science of Boology in Benin. It is indeed a set of life stories, testimonies and also scientific works that are expected to pay a deserved tribute “to the one who opened another boulevard of research oriented towards endogeneity”.
It will soon be six years since Professor Jean Marie Apovo returned to the land of his ancestors. And since the academic community wants to remember his works, posthumous mixtures are requested from all those who had the chance to know him or to work with him.
The inventor of boology, a science that allows the study of Fâ-Vodùn-Boo, the late Professor Jean Marie Apovo set an example for a whole generation of researchers and teachers at the University of Abomey-Calavi, which is open to the world. Thus the concept of ‘boology’ has sounded the death knell for scientific weakness. It has therefore become necessary to open the doors of the lecture halls of the University of Abomey-Calavi to this heritage of Beninese and even West African ontology that the Ancestors have bequeathed as epistemology.
It is therefore to exemplify the scientific career of this academic by updating his research work as endogenous levers for development, that the LaBooId, led by Dr. Raymond Assogba, his successor and torchbearer of boology at the University of Abomey-Calavi initiates the mixtures.
Written submissions can be sent to [email protected]. The deadline to receive articles is 28 January 2023. The participation fees for the publication of the collective work is 30,000 CFA francs and entitles you to a copy of the mixtures. Students, friends, colleagues, relatives of the late Professor Jean Marie Apovo, to your keyboards.
