Alexander Fyfe (www.alexfyfe.com
) Assistant Professor in the World Lit/Comparative Literature. Alex Fyfe's research focuses on the connections between politics and literary form in contemporary African literary production. His current book project argues that since the 1980s African writers have, in diverse ways, used experimentations in literary form to imagine alternative modes of subjectivity in response to new political challenges. The project includes readings of writers such as Susan Kiguli, Said Ahmed Mohamed, Olumide Popoola, and Chwayita Ngamlana. His articles have appeared in Interventions, ARIEL, Research in African Literatures, and The Cambridge Journal of Postcolonial Literary Inquiry. At AUB he teaches courses on African literatures, world literatures, and postcolonial literatures.
