The Archival Politics of the Postcolonial Writer’s Collection

My latest article, “The Archival Politics of the Postcolonial Writer’s Collection: A Case Study in Literary Value and Amos Tutuola,” has been published by Ariel and can be found on Project MUSE here. It considers what Amos Tutuola’s collected papers (housed at the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin) can tell us about the ways in which postcolonial scholars might productively and responsibly engage with writers’ archives—all via a discussion of the relations between the archive and literary value.
