“Displace: The Poetry of Nduka Otiono” is the latest publication of our very own Dr. Nduka Otiono Associate Professor of  English and Graduate Program Coordinator here at the Institute of African Studies.

DisPlace is a book that straddles multiple poetic traditions and places African intellectual history at the forefront of an engagement with Western poetics. Otiono in this book engages actively with a diasporic world and is equally at home critiquing petroculture in Nigeria and in Canada.

The book will be launched in-person on Wednesday March 30, 2022 at the  Humanities Lecture Hall, Paterson 303. There will also be a virtual live stream  online on Zoom.
