Muslim Families in Global Senegal : Money Takes Care of Shame, Paperback / softback Book

Muslim Families in Global Senegal : Money Takes Care of Shame Paperback / softback

Description

Senegalese Murid migrants have circulated cargo and currency through official and unofficial networks in Africa and the world.

Muslim Families in Global Senegal focuses on trade and the transmission of enduring social value though cloth, videos of life-cycle rituals, and religious offerings.

Highlighting women's participation in these networks and the financial strategies they rely on, Beth Buggenhagen reveals the deep connections between economic profits and ritual and social authority.

Buggenhagen discovers that these strategies are not responses to a dispersed community in crisis, but rather produce new roles, wealth, and worth for Senegalese women in all parts of the globe.
