- Postcolonial Literature and Theory
- I am a postcolonialist by training who specializes in African literature. My recent work has investigated both film and fiction in sub-saharan Africa, particularly concerning questions of gender, the nation and the state, and modernity. I regularly teach the Literary Theory survey (491), an upper level seminar in Ethnic and Postcolonial literature and the second half of the American literature survey.
