Decolonising the Imagination: freeing reading and writing from the legacy of Empire is a masterclass by Leila Aboulela, and welcomes anyone interested in anti-racism, Black Lives Matter and diversity, as well as writers, readers and educators who are looking for ways to enrich their practice. Our views of the world and of ourselves are shaped by the texts we read. Often, it is the victor’s story that is amplified and easily accessible. Imperial and colonial ideas dominate the cultural landscape with deep and long-term effects not only on readers but also on creative writers. How do we question whose viewpoint such stories are coming from? How can we distinguish between harmful legacies, cherished tradition, and art? How can we free our imagination to discover new ways of thinking and knowing? The aim of the Masterclass is to enrich our understanding of decolonisation and gain inspiration from the following African key texts: Ngugi wa Thiong’o ‘s Decolonising the Mind, Franz Fanon’s Black Skin, White Masks, Tayeb Salih’s Season of Migration to the North, and Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi’s The First Woman. Leila Aboulela has written short fiction, plays and five novels, including The Kindness of Enemies, Minaret and, most recently, Bird Summons. Her debut novel, The Translator, was one of New York Times’100 Notable books of the Year, while Lyrics Alley was Fiction Winner of the Scottish Book Awards. Leila was the first winner of the Caine Prize for African Writing and her latest short story collection, Elsewhere, Home, won the Saltire Fiction Book of the Year Award. She is currently writing a historical novel set in Sudan. WayWORD is a a student and youth-led festival hosted by the WORD Centre for Creative Writing at the University of Aberdeen.

The conversation is mostly spoiler free (just one question at the very end contains minor spoilers but I give you warning!). We cover themes of Muslim female representation, the historical figure of Lady Evelyn Zainab Cobbold, friendship and sisterhood, motherhood, identity and more! I’m especially excited to hear about Leila’s upcoming release which we will have to wait for but I’m sure it will be worth the wait! Thank you to Leila for joining us and being generous in her time and answers. And thank you to everyone who tuned in and got involved. I’m sorry of you asked a question and I didn’t get to it but I hope you found the rest of discussion enlightening and enriching.
