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 the legacies of settler colonialism in Southern African writing, and alternative conceptions of ‘wordliness’ in postcolonial African 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 African literature, World Literature, settler colonialism, postcolonial literature and theory, and critical theory.
I am a member of the Postcolonial Studies Association (UK).
