OLOFINLUA Temitayo, ADEDIRE Adegboyega (2017) The meaning of living in a religious space: The Sabon Gari Example

This paper was written as a field report for the Masterclass “Sacred Urbanism: Entrepreneurial Religion, Infrastructure and the New Urbanism in Nigeria” held at the University of Ibadan in June 2017. During the Masterclass, a team of postgraduate students conducted a day of field research in the area of the Sabo Central Mosque in Ibadan. They notably payed attention to the negotiation of the space by residents and users of the area. They also looked at inter-faith relations, membership conditions to the sacred community and spatial appropriation dynamics.
