There is magic in African literature: Oxford Lecture Event 14 February 2022

 “There is magic in African literature…”

 – Stephen Embleton. 

This past month at Oxford has been an extraordinary experience culminating (but not ending) last night with the event I was able to participate in. 

The first part having Onyeka Nwelue open the event and then interview James Currey. Followed by Professor Miles Larmer introducing me for my lecture. “There is magic in African literature.” An odd experience knowing there were many watching remotely and sending through questions for the Q&A afterwards. 


Read the essay based on the lecture here.
