My research is situated at the intersection of World Literature and Postcolonial Studies. I have special expertise in modern and contemporary Anglophone African literatures, especially the work of Dambudzo Marechera and J.M. Coetzee.
My current projects focus on contemporary Southern African writing and ‘the ends of postcolonialism’; encounters between World-Literary Studies and the postcolonial; and the relationship between politics and aesthetics in World Literature.
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).
