A POLYVALENT MEDITERRANEAN, or the trope of nomadism in the literary oeuvre of Igiaba Scego and Abdourahman A. Waberi

Waberi, building on the work of Nuruddin Farah among others, engage the trope of nomadism so as to propose a pre-colonial imaginary of a Somali polyvalent cosmopolitanism as a possible tool for thinking through our contemporary geographies of Africa, Europe, and the Middle East.
