Upcoming Presentations in Nairobi and Johannesburg

I'm very pleased to share my work with some of my Africanist colleagues at two exciting venues this month and next.

On Wednesday, March 26th, at 2PM, I'll be lecturing on "The Politics of Animality in Kenyan Cultural Production, 1933-1991" at the Wangari Maathai Institute for Peace and Environmental Studies at the University of Nairobi, where I am an affiliated researcher.

And then, on Wednesday, April 9th, at 1:30PM I'll be presenting my work on Ebrahim Hussein, Julius Nyerere and the politics of the uncanny at the African Literature Association's 2014 conference in Johannesburg. My panel is "Ghosts, Zombies and the Uncanny," and I can hardly imagine a better forum in which to explore my ideas.
