research overview

  • My scholarly work and teaching reflect an interest in modernist literature and its circulation within African diasporic cultures, including its impact within Africa itself. I am interested in questions of the performativity of literature, cultural exchange, cultural economies and ethics. I conceptualize twentieth century anglophone literature less in terms of finished works and ideas than in terms of their movement, exchange, and translation within transnational circuits.
