Zenzele Olatunji

Zenzele is a third-year graduate student in Comparative Literature. She holds a B.A. in English literature with a minor in French and Francophone Studies from Mills College where she graduated magna cum laude in 2015.
 
During the 2017-2018 academic year, she taught the first-year French series (i.e., Frenlang1, Frenlang2, and Frenlang3). In summer 2018, she worked as a writing tutor with underrepresented students from the Stanford-CUNY Initiative.
 
In her current research, she studies postcolonial Francophone literature within the Maghreb. Through the lens of the novel, she examines depictions of literary and potentially lived models of generational solidarity, sororal friendship, and covert resistance among female characters as a means of subverting patriarchy and colonialism.
