The department is excited to announce the appointment of Professor Tina Steiner as co-editor of the Eastern African Literary and Cultural Studies journal, alongside our ex-colleague Lynda Spencer (now at Rhodes), Godwin Siundu (who is an SU research fellow), Tom Odhiambo (Univeristy of Nairobi) and Dina Ligaga (Wits).
The journal has a close relationship with the East African conference series that the department has co-hosted over the years at the universities of Makerere, Nairobi, and Dar es Salaam, under the guidance of Professor Grace Musila.Professor
Steiner's appointment, with Professor Louise Green's existing
appointment as co-editor of the journal Social Dynamics, further serves
to establish the profile of excellence in the departmental research
focus areas of the English Department at Stellenbosch University
The department also wishes to
congratulate recent MA graduate, Tembi Charles, on her selection to the
Penn State University PhD programme, which was facilitatedbyProfessor Gabeba Baderoon, a Professor Extraordinaire in the department.
