I started exchanging with Prof. Daniel Nkemleke lately and I would like to acknowledge that it has been a very enriching experience. As a junior scientist in Contemporary American Literature, I have severally needed guidance when I think of paper or a project. Prof. Nkemleke has always been available to provide the much-needed mentoring and editorial support. His useful remarks, criticisms and suggestions have been a significant contribution to my recent projects that lumps Theatre and Performance, Language and Cultural Policy Studies, together. The idea of his network for working together with students and colleagues at postdoc level is a timely asset for the department and beyond.
