Sarah Lincoln received her Ph.D. in English from Duke University in 2008 and joined the PSU faculty in 2010. Her teaching and research interests include postcolonial and other global literatures of the twentieth- and twenty-first centuries, with a particular focus on Africa; along with ecocriticism, world cinema and critical theory. Her work focuses on the intersection of literature with economics and ecology in the context of anti- and neocolonialism. She is currently at work on a manuscript entitled The Idea of Gardening: Ecology in the Ruins, which studies the political, ethical, and environmental stakes of cultivation in the aftermath of colonialism and capitalism.
