Nafeesa T. Nichols is a doctoral student at the University of Bergen. Her thesis project, with the work title "Popular Spaces: Space, Race and Gender in Four Contemporary South African Novels", explores how urban places in South Africa continue to restrict black citizens even after apartheid. Nichols is also interested in political activism and popular cultural movements such as afropunk and hip hop.
The event is followed by a post seminar.
