   schema:description "It combines a focus on micro-level processes of strategic cultural appropriation, with explorations of reflexivity, creativity and the production of knowledge. The first section examines philosophical issues relating to the production of knowledge in and about Africa from a globalizing perspective, while the subsequent sections include case studies showing how these processes are accommodated in everyday life."@en ;
   schema:description "The book argues the significance of this appropriation in ongoing local struggles, the expression of critical thinking, ideologies, and ritual styles of behaviour. Situating Globality straddles the divide between anthropological and philosophical representations of Africa in the new world order."@en ;
