Rashida Adum-Atta, Food and Interreligious Coexistence in Madina

Rashida Alhassan Adum-Atta is a PhD researcher in the Madina Project which is part of the research programme Religious Matters in an Entangled World, lead by Prof. Birgit Meyer at Utrecht University. The focus of her research in this project is Food as Entry Point to the Material Study of Religion in Plural Settings. She investigates how food acts as a matter for inclusion and exclusion in everyday social relations and the implications for coexistence. Her focus is on food exchange among Muslims and Christians and to a lesser extent, practitioners of African Traditional Religion, in Madina Zongo; a diverse neighborhood in Accra, the capital of Ghana.
