born in Nairobi in 1963, she primarily researches cultural memory. As a columnist and author for »African Affairs«, »Journal of African Cultural Studies«, and others, she sheds light on the intersection of politics, identity, and culture. In her book »Kenya@50« [2015] she uses a comprehensive body of different types of texts to examine the question of how the individual sense of belonging is shaped after fifty years of Kenyan independence.
