Stella Dee

university student studying Malian oral narratives

I'm an undergraduate student at Duke University in North Carolina. I've been assisting a professor with the translation of Songhay (Koyra Chiini) radio broadcasts from Timbuktu. The particular broadcast we've been working on tells the story of a town's leadership dispute. For my senior honors thesis, I'm hoping to contextually situate this broadcast, in order to make the translation and story accessible to an English speaking audience.
