Bhakti Shringarpure

Bhakti Shringarpure is Assistant Professor of English at University of Connecticut and the founding editor of Warscapes magazine. She works in the fields of postcolonial literature and theory, gender studies, digital humanities, cultural studies, and media. Her publications include three edited anthologies titled Literary Sudans: An Anthology of Literature from the Sudan & South Sudan (Africa World Press), Imagine Africa (Archipelago Books) and Mediterranean, an anthology of migrant and refugee journeys (Warscapes and UpSet Press) as well as a translation of Senegalese writer Boris Boubacar Diop’s novel Kaveena (Indiana University Press). Her forthcoming book Cold War Assemblages: Decolonization to Digital (Routledge) destabilizes existing Cold War genealogies by bridging the gap between the simultaneously unfolding histories of postcoloniality and the forty-five-year ideological and geopolitical rivalry between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. Shringarpure has also published in Guardian, Huffington Post, Africa is a Country, Los Angeles Review of Books and The Funambulist.
