Celebrating Tejumola Olaniyan’s Life

Today marks the first anniversary of the passing of Tejumola (Teju) Olaniyan, Louise Durham Mead Professor of English & Wole Soyinka Professor of the Humanities at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.

To commemorate the one year anniversary of his passing, Prof. Olaniyan’s wife, Mojisola Olaniyan (Assistant Dean and Director of Academic Enhancement, UW–Madison Law School), as well as his children Bolajoko (Program Director, Wisconsin-in-Washington, UW-Madison International Division) and Olabimpe have created a memorial website to celebrate his life and legacy.
