Featured PhD Alumna: Lindsey Green-Simms
Lindsey Green-Simms (PhD, Comparative Literature 2009) is a Visiting Assistant Professor of World Anglophone Literature at the College of Charleston in Charleston, South Carolina. She was also a 2009-2010 postdoctoral fellow in Women’s Studies at Duke University. Her interests include postcolonial theory, African literature and film, globalization, and gender/sexuality studies. Lindsey’s current book project, Postcolonial Automobility: West Africa and the Road to Globalization, examines how the contradictions of globalization are embedded in both the commodity of the automobile and in automobility, the ideal of the fully mobilized self that is typically coupled with the technological device of the automobile. She has published articles on African films and plays, Nollywood (Nigerian) video-films, and human rights cinema in The Journal of Postcolonial Writing; Viewing African Cinema in the Twenty-First Century (Ohio U. Press); Indiscretions: At the Intersection of Queer and Postcolonial Theory (Rodopi Press); and The Journal of Diversity in Organizations, Communities, and Nations.
