          Abstract

          Examining the pedagogy of Nigeria’s post-secondary film studies, this paper joins the call against the universalization of film studies practices under a Westernized umbrella. To make that argument, it implicates issues of (neo)colonialism and indigenous knowledge-making processes in the analysis of Nigeria’s film studies, taking into account the close relationship between Nigeria’s film education and the local film industry, Nollywood. Calling on criticisms advocating for alternative ways for engaging with the practice of film studies ( Irobi, 2014; Chambers, 2018; Redfern, 2014), the paper sets out to help reinforce the definition of the global by its many diverse and constitutive parts.
