Dr. Timothy Kiogora, Associate Professor of Humanities
The Department of Foreign Languages and Humanities celebrates the life of our colleage and friend, Dr. Timothy Kiogora, Associate Professor of Humanities.
Dr. Kiogora, who joined the EKU faculty in 1995 and taught Comparative Humanities courses and in our African/African-American Studies Program, demonstrated a passion for educating students and colleagues about the African diaspora, particularly with regard to his native Kenya.
Colleagues remember him as a gentle soul with a calming presence, and well respected by faculty and students alike as an exemplary scholar and teacher. He recently authored a book chapter entitled “Toward An African Renaissance: Pan-Africanism and Africans in the Diaspora.” The book, “Retracing Africa: A Multidisciplinary Study of African Histories, Societies and Culture,” was edited by EKU colleagues Dr. Ogechi Anyanwu and Dr. Salome Nnoromele.
A Celebration of Life service for Dr. Kiogora was held Saturday, Jan. 5, at 2 p.m. at First United Methodist Church in Richmond, KY. He was buried in Kenya.
In lieu of flowers, contribute to an AFA scholarship in Dr. Kiogora's name, as well as a school that he sponsored in his hometown.
