Stefanie Hirsbrunner talks with Porter Anderson about InterKontinental’s mission, the obstacles and #WIM18

“One problem we’ve identified,” Hirsbrunner says, “is a lack of knowledge about what African literature is. Sometimes, they think it’s about people writing about Africa” rather than from Africa, as in travel writing: “They’ll have somebody who went to Africa and came back and wrote about it. And then they’ll think they have African literature.”
