Nienke Boer - "The Briny South"

This week, Dr. Nienke Boer (Sydney) joins our producer, Sam Gleave Riemann, to discuss her 2023 book, The Briny South: Displacement and Sentiment in the Indian Ocean World (Duke UP). They discuss the connections between post-colonial and ocean studies, feelings and their representations, and South Africa and the broader Indian Ocean World.

Dr. Boer has been Lecturer in World Literatures at the University of Sydney since early 2023. She was previously Assistant Professor of Humanities (Literature) at Yale-NUS College in Singapore. The Briny South is her first monograph.
