Social Spaces of African Societies

Applications and Critique of Concepts about "Transnational Social Spaces"

Edited by: Mechthild Reh, Jurgen Ossenbrugge

Transnational social spaces have emerged in recent years as a research area within migration and area studies. This volume is about African social spaces with examples of Central and Western Africa as well as of African - European relations. Contributors from different disciplines like anthropology, geography, political and educational sciences outline their interpretations of transnational social spaces, based on theoretical and empirical work within a wider research project at the University of Hamburg about contemporary transformations of African societies.
