What to wear? Dress and transnational african identity

Publication Abstract

Renne, Elisha. 2012. "What to wear? Dress and transnational african identity." In West African Migrations: Transnational and Global Pathways in a New Century edited by Okome, M. O., Vaughan, O.. Palgrave Macmillan.

BOOK OVERVIEW:
Drawing on the interdisciplinary research projects of scholars from various social science and humanities disciplines, this book explores how African migration to Western countries after the neo-liberal economic reforms of the 1980s transformed West African states and their new transnational populations in Western countries. Collectively, their contributions offer an analysis of how the interplay of social, political, economic, and cultural forces have shaped the nature and form of transnationalization.
