(The original title was “Islam and Modernity in Hausa Cultural Politics: A Cultural Overview”, but it got cut down by the editor to “Islam and Modernity” to better fit in with the format of other chapters in the book. The content of the chapter is reflected in the original title, which presents modernity in a historical Islamic Hausa context. I end with a discussion of Hausa film.)
Please note that to read this scan more comfortably go to the view option of your pdf and select rotate clockwise. Also please note that there was some sort of editorial/proofreader’s error on my bibliography. I had submitted the bibliography in an abbreviated form, and the proofreader must have accidentally copied and pasted the wrong book when extending the citation. The following articles were cited to the wrong book in the publication. They should read as follows:
Stephens, Connie. 1991. “Marriage in the Hausa Tatsuniya Tradition: A Cultural and Cosmic Balance,” in Hausa Women in the Twentieth Century, ed. Catherine Coles and Beverly Mack, 221-231. Madison: University of Wisconsin Press.
Sule, Balaraba B. M. and Priscilla E. Starratt. 1991. “Islamic Leadership Positions for Women in Contemporary Kano Society,” in in Hausa Women in the Twentieth Century, ed. Catherine Coles and Beverly Mack, 29-49. Madison: University of Wisconsin Press.
My very flawed MA thesis
