is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Centre for the Study of the Afterlife of Violence and the Reparative Quest, Stellenbosch. He has a PhD in English and Literary Studies from Stellenbosch University, South Africa, and an MA in Literary Studies from the University of Ibadan, Nigeria. David’s body of work focuses on the ways in which remembrance and nostalgia are weaponised for diverse violent ends in Africa. His research adopts an intersectional methodology which pays close attention to the ways in which gender, class, sexuality, ethnicity, and ability/disability intersect to create multiplex modes of being and belonging within Africa. This mode of approaching conflicts pays attention to how sameness and difference often interact to silence some voices within popular histories.
