Religion and Economic Activities in the Murids' Islamic Brotherhood of Touba, Senegal
AuthorMaiga, Aliou Arka
This thesis is a reflection about imbrications of religion and economic activities in the Murids’ Islamic brotherhood of Senegal. With Visual Anthropology as disciplinary framework, I conducted fieldwork in Senegal with a video camera and, made a 30 minute documentary film from the material I collected in that regard. It addresses the quotidian of a young Murid living in Touba. In the following pages, I reflect upon life situations of several informants I met in Touba, the wholly city of the brotherhood. The discussion about their concrete daily lives will bring me to analyze the brotherhood as a whole for the reader to have a complete picture of it.
