Omofolabo Ajayi-Soyinka

Professor of Women, Gender, & Sexuality Studies
Primary office:

Dr. Ajayi-Soyinka's area of specialty is African literature and theatre with emphasis on women's writing. Part of her research also borders on the African Diaspora particularly on the use of theatre and its depiction of women during independent struggles; there are remarkable similarities with the experience of continental Africans. However, in her current research she concentrates on the intersection of national and gender identities in African women's creative writings (prose and drama) and their impact on critical theory of African literature since the 1970's.
