Award-winning Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has just been nominated for a Grammy. Yes, a music award. A sample from her Ted Talk "We Should All Be Feminists" is featured in Beyoncé's hit song "Flawless." Adichie's nomination, a first for a Nigerian writer, is an exciting demonstration of contemporary intersections of the literature of the African Diaspora and other arts. Adichie first gave her talk to a live audience, it later "went viral" on the video sharing platform Youtube (where Beyoncé accessed the work so inspirational to her developing feminist identification), it was initially published via Kindle, and is forthcoming as a paperback.

This panel proposes to investigate the formation of a "Postcolonial Studies Generation": namely, a generation of artists who attended university after the consolidation of postcolonial studies in the academy in the 1980s, and whose artistic production bears the influence of this academic contact. The creative production of this generation includes literature, and extends beyond it, encompassing music, visual art, digital media, and other forms.
