Congratulations to Beverly Osazuwa for receiving the first Maurice Price Summer Internship for the College of the Humanities.
Beverly explains: “My research project explores the ways in which African women, during the Era of Independence, constructed their identities in a space between the political and literary standards set by African men and the weight of colonial presence. The women of my project wrote, not to be understood by the West, but to create dialogue on the continent. My project will examine the complexity of selfhood and womanhood in the writings of African women and their place in modern literary canons.”
Beverly will be supervised by Professor Micheline White.
