Muslim Families In Global Senegal: Money Takes Care Of Shame

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.ReviewWhile the author's focus is on the transformation in the role of women both within the family network and in the marketplace, the book allows readers to better understand the impact of globalism on the citizens of Senegal. Recommended.,ChoiceThis book offers a powerful entry point into a world of meaning and practice that lies far beyond standard reports from the developing world that focuses on poverty, education, or the status of women.,IJAHSSince the early 1990s, Beth Buggenhagan has been working with an extended Wolof Muslim family in urban Senegal, following the trajectories, travels and tribulations of various membersWhat makes the book a unique and innovative contribution is the way it addresses the broad theme of continuity and change. . .May 2014,AfricaMuslim Families in Global Senegal is an engaging account of the struggles, at once moral and material, which Senegalese families face to ensure social reproduction in the current context of fiscal instability and religious reforms. It contributes a nuanced understanding of gendered economies in a Muslim society and is highly suitable for classroom adoption due to its relatively short length and the clarity of its presentation. Beth Buggenhagen brings to this ethnography a sustained history of research in Senegal as well as a keen understanding of the Murid diaspora and its role in the Senegalese economy.,Journal of African HistoryReviewA lively, insightful, and important study of exchange practices between Senegal and a circuit of global trade. The innovative focus is on the meanings, not the social and economic functions, of exchange. -- Karen Tranberg Hansen,Northwestern UniversityAbout the AuthorBeth Buggenhagen is Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Indiana University Bloomington.
