Thank you Sir for the welcome. I am a budding anthropologist and presently looking for a unique topic for my research work in order to pursue my PhD in the same. I would be grateful if I could get suggestions for my work from the experienced members of OAC.
Thank you for your comments. I'm basically a sociologist, however I did lots of ethnography for my academic works. I'm a PhD Candidate at Humboldt University of Berlin now, my project is on 'the dakwah (Islamic) media in Post Suharto Indonesia: from politics of identity to popular culture.' I'm teaching cultural studies and ethnography at Gadjah Mada University, Yogyakarta - Central Java, Indonesia. I'll publish my stuffs soon in my open anthro blog, once again Thank you, Vielen Dank.
Yes, we must talk- my Nollywood studies have led me to the brink of the vast abyss that divides the world into two economies. I am astounded at the extent some of our colleagues will go to keep these two worlds separated. They feel it's vital to keep Nollywood "vulgarity" out of serious academic discourse, and to keep all scholarship on African film focused on those politically acute Francophone art films that are unknown in Africa. They would rather write about movies they can easily interpret, than about what Africans are actually watching! I now understand your frustration with the way your concept of "informal economy" was misappropriated and used against itself.
