I specialize in francophone literatures with a particular focus on urban space, migration, and gender. My research spans several geographical areas such as West Africa, the Indian Ocean, the Caribbean, as well as North and South America. My most recent publications deal with the Black Mediterranean, African speculative fiction, and the concept of geographic metafiction. Currently, I am preparing a manuscript that reads African literature through the lens of migration to Canada, Brazil, and the US. My new research project will address the concept of reverse diaspora formation by exploring the history of Afro-Brazilian returnees (Agudas) to West Africa.
