My research is situated at the intersection of World Literature and Postcolonial Studies. I have special expertise in modern and contemporary Anglophone African literature, especially the work of Dambudzo Marechera and J.M. Coetzee.
My current projects focus on contemporary Southern African writing and the so-called ‘ends of postcolonialism’; the relationship between politics and aesthetics in World Literature; and debates between Postcolonial and World-Literary Studies more broadly.
My doctoral research investigated postcolonial reconfigurations of World Literature, using Gilles Deleuze’s concept of the line of flight (ligne de fuite) as a philosophical and methodological refrain.
Areas of interest related to the above include modern and contemporary Anglophone African Literature, World Literature, Postcolonial Literature and Theory, Continental Philosophy and Critical Theory.
I am a member of the Postcolonial Studies Association (UK).
