African Street Literature, special issue of English Studies in Africa.

The members of the project have edited a special issue of English Studies in Africa (Vol 61(2), 2018). The issue focuses on street literature and other forms of textual culture. Ashleigh Harris has authored the introduction and Nicklas Hållén has contributed an article about the poetics of uplift on Okadabooks, an app and online reading platform that is popular among authors and readers in Nigeria (read it here), and an interview with one of its representatives, Magnus Okeke.
