STREAM: Lagos Studies Association

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
