Muslims and New Media in West Africa
Muslims and New Media in West Africa: Pathways to God | Dorothea Elisabeth Schulz
2 posts | 1 read
Although Islam is not new to West Africa, new patterns of domestic economies, the promise of political liberalization, and the proliferation of new media have led to increased scrutiny of Islam in the public sphere. Dorothea E. Schulz shows how new media have created religious communities that are far more publicly engaged than they were in the past. Muslims and New Media in West Africa expands ideas about religious life in West Africa, women's roles in religion, religion and popular culture, the meaning of religious experience in a charged environment, and how those who consume both religion and new media view their public and private selves.

I finished it.

Might have understood half of it too.

This is interesting when I can understand what the author is talking about, but I'm having a hard time. Heavy on media and political theory.

"One way to elucidate how the moral reform movement's internal dynamics derive from its location in a translocal field of influences is to address them through the concept of extraversion."

These words don't seem to mean what I think they mean.
