I'm off to Copenhagen, Denmark on Tuesday for a series of events:
1. A programme at Roskilde University. I will be discussing my writing, with particular emphasis on my story ‘To A Cartoonist’ [which deals with the Danish Cartoon crisis of 2006], written at the 2006 Caine Prize workshop in Kenya, and published in the Caine Anthology OBITUARY TANGO
There will also be discussions on contemporary Nigerian writing, as well as on Nollywood (we'll be watching and discussing a few Nollywood 'blockbusters')
2. The Nordic Africa Days Conference at the University of Copenhagen, theme of which is "Africa on the Move". I will be presenting a paper on The Language Question in African Literature: English versus Indigenous African Languages as part of the 'City Culture, New Culture, but whose Culture?' workshop.
