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.Review"A 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 University (Karen Tranberg Hansen, Northwestern University)"A first-rate ethnography of Muslim women in Dakar.... provides not only a wealth of detail but extremely fine-grained analysis of women's exchange networks, both in the domains of commerce but especially in ritual contexts." -Robert Launay, Northwestern University (Robert Launay, Northwestern University)"While 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." -Choice (Choice)About the AuthorBeth Buggenhagen is Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Indiana University Bloomington. She is editor (with Anne-Maria Makhulu and Stephen Jackson) of Hard Work, Hard Times: Global Volatility and African Subjectivities.
