Christine Matzke currently teaches African literatures and theatre at the Institute of Asian and African Studies, Humboldt-University, Berlin. She is co-editor of the African studies series Matatu published by Rodopi. Her publications include articles on various aspects of African literature, theatre and culture, especially the performing arts in Eritrea. Of late she has become interested in postcolonial crime fiction and is currently contemplating the acquisition of a magnifying glass to help her with the investigation. Susanne Mühleisen has taught English linguistics at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe-University of Frankfurt and the University of Hannover. She has published widely on Caribbean Creole languages in various socio-cultural contexts, such asCreole Discourse: Exploring Prestige Formation and Change Across Caribbean English-lexicon Creoles, (Benjamins, Amsterdam 2002); ed. Creole Languages in Creole Literatures (JPCL Special issue) and ed. (with Bettina Migge) Politeness and Face in Caribbean Creoles, (Benjamins, Amsterdam 2005). She has also worked in other areas of linguistics at the interface of postcolonial studies, including postcolonial translation. Her interest and enthusiasm in postcolonial crime fiction is the result of years of commuting and long train journeys.
