Research at the Mathers Lecture Series -- A Snapshot of Happiness: Photography, Religious Mediation, and Economic Uncertainty in Muslim Senegal

Popular photography in cities across the African continent favors multiple exposures, cutwork, and photomontage. In Dakar, photographers taking family pictures incorporate these elements and also draw on Muslim Sufi visual practices emphasizing repetition and montage. Beth Buggenhagen, Faculty Curator and Assistant Professor of Anthropology, focuses on the production and circulation of photographs by Muslim women. The lecture will be free and open to the public.
