Translation Nele Marian

I am happy to announce that I signed a contract with Uitgeverij De Geus to translate the poetry of Congolese-Belgian poet Nele Marian. I am really excited about this project as Nele Marian, born in the Congo in 1906, was one of the first female poets of African origin in Belgium.

Her poetry will be part of a book about her life written by Congolese-Belgian political scientist Nadia Nsayi. She will also provide historical and political context, as one can see that the original publisher was called “L’Expansion Coloniale”.
