Publication: Existential Transformations. Life in the West African Savannah since the 1970s
Till Förster's paper asks how existential transformations are experienced, lived, remembered and conceived by the people, but also by ethnographers. Förster aims at capturing "la longue durée" of his fieldwork among the Senufo in northern Côte d’Ivoire, West Africa, by reproducing the messiness and often inconsistency of ethnographic experience.
