Description - Fulbe Voices by Helen A. Regis

Attending to everyday conversations and embodied performances about Islam, marriage, medicine, and Fulbe identity, Fulbe Voices provides a richly textured exploration of the dynamics of cultural diversity in a village in Cameroon. . Fulbe Voices is based on everyday conversations in the West African village of Domaayo, Cameroon, where men and women struggle with the multiple cultural contradictions and social tensions emerging from their varied perspectives as farmers and entrepreneurs, schoolboys and elders, married and free women, rulers and ruled, Muslim scholars and spirit workers. Though sharing many terms of debate, Fulbe persons passionately argue about Muslim ideals and pagan practices, about Fulbe tradition and national reform, and about local histories and global flows. In Fulbe culture, social worlds are articulated and transformed through narrative and embodied performance.
