Research Interests

Personal Statement

My research interest lies in cultural anthropology of social networks and transnational social spaces in the historical context of globalization. With a focus on Senegal and the Senegalese diaspora in the US, Europe and elsewhere in Africa I am interested in how individuals, households, and communities react to structural economic and political constraints at the local, national and global level. My research covers three main areas of inquiry regarding social change in Senegalese communities abroad and at home: Informal finance and economic life, Transnational Social Spaces and the Culture of Migration; Pilgrimage, Muslim Religious Practice and Village Based Social Networks.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
