The fourth volume of BIGSASworks! seeks to present the interdependence of paradigms and practices in global, national, and local spheres from different disciplinary perspectives and foci - Social Anthropology, Geography, Media Studies, Political Sciences and Sociology. The contributing papers present various ways in which the daily livelihood activities of community people in different parts of Africa represent this interdependence. Together and in interlinked ways, the authors address the question of how global development paradigms affect people’s lives, what meanings are there in the everyday things people do to live that may synchronise or be at variance with these global paradigms. The contributing papers challenge us all to take another look at our approach to development in Africa and its entanglements with broader forces.
