About the Website

I have built this website, which is not official, mainly for two reasons.

First of all (and obviously), I would like to promote the work of an extremely talented writer.

Secondly, as both online and offline articles/reviews have proliferated over the years, I hope to be able to compile reliable and, as far as possible, comprehensive information on works published by and about Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, including scholarly essays. I have modelled the bibliographical section of this website on Bénédicte Ledent's Caryl Phillips Bibliography and Hena Maes-Jelinek's Wilson Harris Bibliography.

I would like to encourage readers and scholars from all over the world to contribute items, either from printed documents, from Internet sites or from other sources. All references and comments can be sent to:

Thank you!

About the Webmistress

I work in the English Department of the University of Liège, Belgium, where I am a member of the postcolonial research group CEREP. My teaching and research interests include postcolonial literatures (especially Nigerian fiction) and stylistics.

I am the author of the book Stylistic Approaches to Nigerian Fiction (Palgrave Macmillan, 2014), and the co-editor of several books and journal issues in the field of postcolonial literatures: with Bénédicte Ledent, I have co-edited Caryl Phillips: Writing in the Key of Life (Rodopi, 2012), as well as special issues of Transition (113, 2014), Research in African Literatures (46.4, 2015), and the Journal of Commonwealth Literature (55.3, 2020); with Janet Wilson, I have co-edited Postcolonial Gateways and Walls: Under Construction (Brill, 2016) and a special issue of the Journal of Postcolonial Writing (51.1, 2015).

I have also edited Conversations with Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the first collection of interviews with the author (University Press of Mississippi, 2020).

I have written a number of articles on writers such as Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Ben Okri, Chris Abani, and Chika Unigwe. Many of these are available online: on Academia.edu, on Researchgate.net, and on the University of Liège's institutional repository ORBi.

I maintain online bibliographies of works by and about Chris Abani, Ben Okri, and Chika Unigwe.
