Douglas Kaze

I am from Nigeria and my areas of interest include postcolonial studies, ecocriticism and creative writing.

I am currently studying the poetry of South African poet, Arthur Nortje (1942-1970). Employing a palette of ecocritical and postcolonial theories, my focus is the portrayal of the physical environment in the poetry as it intersects with the poet’s sense of historical and spatial displacement.

I am supervised by Professor Dirk Klopper, and I am a beneficiary of the Mellon Focus Area Scholarship. PhD Candidates
