Title:Ideology and identity: The Dyula 'ulama of Korhogo
Author:Launay, RobertISNI
Notes:Paper presented at the congress of the Middle East Studies Association of North America 'Islam in Africa', San Francisco, 29.11-2.12.1984
Geographic term:Ivory Coast - Côte d'Ivoire
Abstract:In the region around Korhogo town in northern Ivory Coast, Dyula traders are still a minority, also as Moslems. Koko, the 'traditional' Dyula quarter of the town, could not absorb the flood of Moslem immigrants; today it is no longer the unique Moslem community but only a segment of it. The author compares the modern roles of the karamokos (as the 'ulama are localy called) among the Dyula in town and country-side.
