STREAM: Lagos Studies Association
Established in 2017, the Lagos Studies Association is an international, interdisciplinary organization of academic and non-academic practitioners whose interest focus on Lagos and its peoples. Their members include scholars, students, activists, artists, teachers, donors, policymakers, and development professionals. Through exchanges between academic and non-academic practitioners, they anticipate deepening the rigor of contemporary scholarship as well as encouraging the integration of critical and thought-provoking questions into non-academic projects on Lagos.
The five successive panels will be:
A histories of Lagos
B contemporary Lagos (urban studies/ development/ economics)
C Lagos cultures (Nollywood/ literature)
D Religions in Lagos (Christianity/ Islam/ African religions)
E Maritime Lagos
If you have any queries or suggestions please contact Saheed Aderinto (email@example.com) and Oliver Coates (firstname.lastname@example.org). For panels and papers please await the official call for papers, which is expected in September 2017.
