I am a Ph.D. student in the African History Program, with a minor concentration in African Cultural Studies. Ispecialize in 19th and 20th-century West Africa, and my research interests include migration, urbanization, urban popular culture, and gender in Africa. My current research maps the social lives of Muslim migrants in Ghana’s largest migrant enclave as a way to highlight the role of intra-African migrants in shaping the socio-cultural landscape of the nation’s capital, Accra, in the 20th century.
