My research interests include African literature and publishing in Africa, emergent literatures and travel literature, among other things.
I am a member of the KuFo researchgroup.
I teach English literature and literature courses for teacher students.
I finished my PhD studies at Umeå University in 2011 and have since then worked or been based at, Uppsala University, University of York and Linnaeus University. My postdoc project focused on African American and Black British travel writing about Africa and my current research project is about African street literature.
