Mukile Kasongo

Mukile Kasongo (DR Congo) is currently enrolled as a PhD student in Translation Studies at the University of Birmingham. His research is on African Feminisms and Multilingualism: The Case of the Russian Translation of African Francophone Literature. Before he began his PhD studies, Mukile spent four years in Russia. Mukile believes there is a need to study translation involving Russian language and African textualities as little research has been conducted on the import and translation processes of African novels in Russia/Soviet Union.
