Ph.D., University of Leeds
My teaching at WOU has focused on postcolonial literature, African literature, British literature, cultural trauma and memory studies, literary criticism and theory, and topical courses such as "Minority Voices," "The Human & the Nonhuman," and "Everything is Spiritual."
I specialize in global Anglophone literature and postcolonial studies, with an emphasis on 20th-21st century African literature. My research focuses on trauma and memory studies, postcolonial theory and poetics, global modernism, indigenous knowledge systems, and religion and the postsecular.
My articles appear in English Language Notes, Research in African Liteartures, Moving Worlds: A Journal of Transcultural Writings, the Routledge Companion to Literature and Trauma, and elsewhere.
