Her dissertation explores Black-European women’s transnational activism between 1968 and 2001. Pamela is also the founder of Afrolitt,’ a bilingual platform that uses literature from sub-Saharan Africa and its Black diaspora as a tool enabling critical knowledge and sharing. Its activities take place in Lausanne, Geneva and Accra. They range from reading groups to events around literature, as well as a blog and a web series.
