My name is Youssef Carter and I am a doctoral student at the University of California, Berkeley, working with Mariane Ferme, an associate professor in the Department of Anthropology. I am here to study African-American and Senegalese Muslims who are part of, or somehow affiliated with, the Tariqa Mustafawiyya. I am interested in how religious ideas and practices occur within the Tariqa in the United States and Senegal. This main purpose of this study is for dissertation research. I'll be taking pictures and videos, and will interview a few people. When the research is completed, I will save recordings, notes, and other data for use in future research done by myself or others.
If you do not want to be photographed or videotaped please tell me or tell Cheikh Harun Faye.
