I am a Tanzanian-American who is currently completing my PhD in the Department of English Literary Studies at the University of Cape Town (UCT). My research focus is the communicability of supernatural, paranormal or so-called magical events in African and American literatures. My research interests extend to themes of translatability, translanguaging and cultural transliteration in African and Caribbean literatures, the communicability of highly subjective experiences (such as the ones tied to race and gender), and the tension between ‘magic’ and ‘real’ when reading African, Caribbean or American First Nations literature through the lens of magical realism.
