Enoch Aboi

Ph.D. Student in Africana Studies

Overview

Enoch Aboi has interest in the role of colonial legacies and foreign cultures in the construction of new identities and otherness in plural societies in Africa and the implications of these for individual sense of belonging, community cohesion and political stability, national and international.  This he proposes to do by exploring the specific experience of the Yoruba region in southwestern Nigeria and how what started out as a successful negotiation of the “triple heritage” is being challenged by growing tensions between Islam and Christianity and establishing the source and impact of these tensions on Yoruba identity both within Nigeria and in the Diaspora.
