The project brings together numerous writers and artists, whose details will be available in the exhibition.

The two project leaders are:

Dr Tinashe Mushakavanhu is a Junior Research Fellow in African and Comparative Literature at the University of Oxford. His research explores the role of literary culture in documentation, historical knowledge, and political power, and his publications include A Brief History of the Zimbabwe International Book Fair (forthcoming), and Reincarnating Marechera: Notes on a Speculative Archive (2020).

Dr Niall Munro is a Senior Lecturer in American Literature at Oxford Brookes and Director of the Oxford Brookes Poetry Centre. His work examines the disruptive effects of cultural memory, especially after war, and his current research focusses on the way in which modernist writers ‘remembered’ the American Civil War. His publications include Hart Crane’s Queer Modernist Aesthetic (2015), and the co-edited volume On Commemoration: Global Perspectives upon Remembering War (2020).
