- Thesis title:
- Islamic identities within the mobilisation of the Boko Haram sect in Kano & Borno (provisional title)
- Year of Study:
My Thesis looks, primarily, at the construction of Islamic identities around particular religio-cultural symbols and concepts in northern Nigeria. It focuses on how these ‘identities’ function as frames, for the purpose of mobilisation, with particular reference to the latter-day Boko Haram sect. The data collated for this research has been ethnographic, for the most part, with the fieldwork conducted in the cities of Kano and Maiduguri.
