Everyday Religion and Tolerance in Ede, Southwest, Nigeria (Dec. 5-6, 2012), Main Auditorium, Adeleke University, Ede, Osun State, Nigeria.
1. The role of different religions in the history and development of Ede town. We are interested in the way in which different religions have been recognised in the traditional government of the town.
2. The relationships of different religious groups in Ede with each other. We want to explore how leaders and ordinary members of different religious communities relate to each other.
3. The interaction of Muslims, Christians and traditionalists in Ede’s professional and associational life. We would like to learn about the way in which Muslims, Christians and traditionalists interact in different institutions and associations.
4. The relationships between members of different religions in family life and marriage. We wish to explore the ways in which individual Ede families negotiate religious difference. How do parents and siblings engage with family members who have converted to a different religion?
