Julie Iromuanya is a writer, scholar, and educator. Broadly, her creative writing and critical work are concerned with migration; more specifically, she is interested in the population of African immigrants in the United States. Literature of the so-called “neo-African American,” caught at the nexus between African Anglophone and African American literature, has revealed much about longstanding intersectional issues related to race, economics, gender, and citizenship. While her work as a creative writer and critical scholar may require different muscles, she values the ways critical inquiry opens up questions and creative writing allows her to dramatize answers.
She is currently at work on a new novel, A Season of Light.
