Background

Book

As a literary scholar, Arun's research concerns the transatlantic movement and memory of Romantic literature in colonial, postcolonial, and global contexts. Following on from his first monograph, Arun's current project, Romanticism and West Africa: Griots, Bards & Books investigates the extent to which Romantic discourse shaped ideological assumptions about West Africa, and assesses how an examination of postcolonial West African writing helps us to redefine the borders of Romanticism.
