Benjamin Ngong took a few minutes to write us from Dickinson College, where he's an Assistant Professor of French and Francophone Studies and Contributing Faculty to Africana Studies. Of academic life, he writes:
Life as an Assistant Professor on tenure track is not easy, but I'm trying to make the best out of it.
In fact, it turns out he's been doing quite well...
In between working on articles about Ahmadou Kourouma and Eduard Glissant, he's just had an article accepted for publication in Archipélies, entitled "Le sang du volcan de Marie-Reine de Jaham ou la nostalgie du " 'paradis perdu.' " We look forward to reading you, Prof. Ngong!
