Globalization in local contexts. Perspectives and concepts of agency in Africa
While many contributions discuss effects of globalization in the ’northern´ sphere this volume do so in the case of so-called peripheral countries of the South. Also, local agency in this context is discussed, and a (theoretical) focus is on areas between the two big categories of ’local´ and ’global´.

Keywords: globalization and local context, local context and globalization, Islam and globalization, hybridity, localism, village and globalization, agency and globalization, Hausa
