I am a comparative literature scholar interested in literary mobility studies, and my on-going research project focuses on the poetics and politics of Afroeuropean mobilities in Francophone African literatures from the mid-20th century to the present. My background is in postcolonial and African literary studies, and my current work contributes to these fields from the perspective of literary mobility studies and, to a lesser extent, travel writing studies. I am currently working on a monograph entitled "Mobilities and Cosmopolitanisms in African Diasporic Literatures."
