Olanike Lawore earned her PhD from Louisiana State University. Prior to her doctoral program, she was a Fulbright scholar at Tulane University, where she taught linguistics and led translation projects. Her writing explores the active construction of identity and her works have appeared in Research in African Literatures and Yoruba Studies Review. In turn, her pedagogy stems from the constructivist model while she welds in poetry as a tool for exemplifying the active construction of meaning in her writing classes.
