Abstract [en]

Born in Nigeria in 1976, Noo Saro-Wiwa grew up in the UK. In 2008 she took a trip around the country of her birth. The journey resulted in her first book, Looking for Transwonderland: Travels in Nigeria (Granta, 2012). It was selected as BBC Radio 4’s Book of the Week and the Sunday Times Travel Book of the Year in 2012. In this interview with Nicklas Hållén and Janet Remmington, Saro-Wiwa covers a range of topics and reflections, including (trans)national identities, readership and reception, the legacy of her father, Ken Saro-Wiwa, and the craft of travel writing. The interview incorporates questions and answers from two occasions: a face-to-face meeting in London in May 2014 and an audience-facing discussion at the University of York’s “African Intellectual Mobilities” colloquium in February 2015.
