African Writers 

On October 7th The Economist reported that Abdulrazak Gurnah, a Tanzanian writer based in Britain, had been awarded the Nobel prize in Literature for 2021 for “his uncompromising and compassionate penetration of the effects of colonialism and the fate of the refugee in the gulf between cultures and continents”. 

Also mentioned was Kenyan writer Ngugi wa Thiong’o, ‘a hero of the decolonisation movement across the world and a longtime Nobel favourite’.

Obviously two authors whose works should be discussed at the ANU.
