There is a burgeoning of academic literature on Boko Haram since the inception of the group in 2009. Many of these studies have taken on a social science analytical perspective to understand “the why” of Boko Haram terrorism. Building on these studies, this panel takes a more humanistic and cultural studies approach to the study of Boko Haram terrorism in Nigeria. Focusing on the ‘experiential truth’ that emerges in the narratives of Boko Haram terrorism in a wide range of media and genres, the panel is interested in understanding Boko Haram terrorism as a lived experience.

When we think of the western literary canon, we tend to think of the famous authors and works that have shaped our literary and scholarly culture into what it is today: Dante, Shakespeare, Milton, Dickens, Twain, Whitman, and the list goes on and on. But In our age of cultural and technological advancement, we believe that the bodies of works we consider worthy of study should also reflect the current world around us. Thus, the goal of this issue of The Humanities Review is to shine a spotlight on those authors, works, and platforms which have not yet found a home in the literary/academic canon, but still merit the kind of close literary analysis afforded to the canon.
