Sarah Lincoln is a literature scholar. Her focus is late 20th century postcolonial and other global literature and film. Professor Lincoln’s research concerns waste, consumerism and economy/ecology in postcolonial contexts, and includes an interest in the political and literary economies of oil in Nigeria. She has published a couple of pieces on necropolitics, sovereignty, and inflationary entropy as these are articulated in the fiction of Nigerian writers Ken Saro-Wiwa and Ben Okri, and is more broadly intrigued by the apparent paradox of a country ruined (ecologically, economically, politically and morally) by its extraordinary riches. She is also concerned with the effects of oil and petro-politics on cultural and literary forms—the relationship between oil and the novel in Nigeria, for example, and the effects of petrodollar inflation on the country’s infamous culture of corruption.
