Living Texts Seminar Series
Sharon Dodua Otoo
Sharon Dodua Otoo, an emerging public intellectual in Germany, will be in conversation (in English) with students and staff as part of the Living Texts seminar series. The online event will also include a short reading from her new novel.
Born in London, Otoo won the prestigious Bachmann prize in 2016, for a literary work in her second language, German. Her recent novel Adas Raum (2021, Fischer Publishers) engages with the colonial history of both Germany and the UK. She has long worked to advance black rights activism and feminism though literary projects.
