About Me

I am a Nigerian PhD candidate at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology in Halle, Germany. My dissertation is on the international trade in secondhand clothing, from Britain to Nigeria, through Cotonou in Benin. I am describing how the trade works, and the different institutions and relations that sustain it.

A major area of focus is on explaining why the importation of secondhand clothing is not only dominated by the Igbo, but why most of the importers and wholesalers in Cotonou are from one village. Just so it is clear, these are Nigerian Igbo traders in Cotonou, Benin Republic.I also go further to describe how the trade works in Britain. In other words, I explore the relationship between charity organisations, English municipalities, charity fundraisers and commercial textile recyclers. I should be done with the dissertation in a year.

I have been blogging since 2005 at www.loomnie.com

Basically, am trying to work on testing a model I evolved in testing the projects whether they, the donor, the executing and authority, encouraged culturally informed participation of the locals.

Great to know you are doing fine. Am now a doctoral candidate in development anthropology at U.I. I am reading now to study the cultural aspect of external intervention in poverty reduction projects in Ibadan, Oyo State. Basically, am trying to work on testing a model I evolved in testing the projects whether theyu are encouraged culturally informed participation of the locals.
By, the way, best of luck with your presentation.
