Postcolonial Urbanities

In addition to her research on geographies of Blackness, Teju focuses more broadly on how postcolonialism is manifested in urbanity. The ways in which postcolonial communities express themselves in urban contexts, their mobility patterns as impacted by their culture, subalternity, as well as using a postcolonial lens through which to understand urbanism. This research also highlights the work of postcolonial activists and artists in European and American cities as manifestations of postcolonial urbanities. It is a way to challenge the European male centric theories that dominate Urban Studies and marginalize other valuable voices.
