Zanzibar International Film Festival (ZIFF) 2017.
This project explores transnational dynamics in the literary production of African women writers in NIgeria and Tanzania, with an emphasis on feminism and Pan-Africanism. It examines local literary worlds as well as digital mediations in literary production and transnational exchange, including social and visual media. Research through ethnographic fieldwork.
Digital media open up new venues for literary production. More writers are present online, along with readers, critics and scholars. Many writers also appear in videos and other forms of media coverage, much of which is posted online. Here I collect some of the online material I have come across. I will also share audiovisual material from this project.
