about

Drawing together contributions from history, anthropology, sociology, political science and religious studies, this collection of original essays interrogates the new structures and conditions of Islam in Senegal, locally and globally.  This volume represents a break from the established literature on “Senegalese Islam,” and brings fresh perspectives, alternative methodologies and provocative theories on transnational Islam, religious conversion, revisionist histories, and patterns of conspicuous consumption in relation to gender and Islam. Chapters highlight discourses and practices in the context of broadly defined sites:  conversion, education, politics and economics, sexuality, popular culture and their impact on the multiple and changing articulations of Muslim identities. 

Mamadou Diouf is the Leitner Family Professor of African Studies, Middle East and Asian languages and cultures and History Department an Director of the Institute of African Studies at Columbia University in New York.Mara Leichtman is Assistant Professor of Anthropology and Muslim Studies at Michigan State University.
