We are happy to welcome Aisha Shehu to the FULGUR team as Editor and Translator. Aisha holds an MA in Business, Technical and Legal translation from the University of Lille and has travelled widely, both professionally and personally. Raised in Nigeria and France, her formative years were spent in a culturally diverse and often liminal environment. ‘My parents were intellectual and liberal. Listening to their exchanges on politics, science or anthropology has had a long-standing impact’, she notes. Today her interests include French existentialism, gender politics, Nigerian spirituality, esotericism and art. ‘I have been painting and drawing for as long as I can remember. For me, art is as vital as breathing.’ Aisha joins us to develop cultural and political diversity, and to lead a new book series titled GERME, to be announced shortly.
