Assistant Professor

Ainehi Edoro is an Assistant Professor at Marquette University. She teaches global Anglophone literatures, 21st century fiction, and literature in digital/social media. She is working on a book titled Paradigms of African Fiction.

Edoro is the founder and Editor of Brittle Paper, a leading online platform dedicated to African writing and literary culture.

Her writings on African literature and the global literary scene have been published in The Guardian, Chimurenga Chronic, Africa is a Country, OkayAfrica and Norway’s Dagsavisen.

In her global literatures courses, Edoro teaches the theory and history of the novel from the standpoint of provincializing the European origins of the form. She also teaches courses aimed at exploring and codifying the evolution of literary forms within digital and social media.

In the last year, she’s presented lectures about her work at Yale University, Northwestern University, School of the Art Institute Chicago, University of Wisconsin, Madison, and most recently at the Kunstnernes Hus in Oslo, Norway.
