I live in Baltimore’s historic neighborhood of Bolton Hill with my husband Kwamina, our son Benji Eyiku, and a giant cat we call “The Scamp”. While South Africa has long been my main second home, these days I’m found more often in Ghana. I work across English, Russian, Afrikaans, Shona, and Fante literary and intellectual traditions, and I am always glad to hear from other unorthodox comparatists. In addition to my main field of African literature, I have published on novel theory, literature and philosophy, comparative method, and Russian realism. I am also the Reviews Editor for the Cambridge Journal of Postcolonial Literary Inquiry.
Aside from academic books and essays, I write for a wide range of public-facing venues. You can find links to that work on my “Other Writing” page.
