Fada: Boredom and Belonging in Niger




      Fada: Boredom and Belonging in Niger
Niger most often comes into the public eye as an example of deprivation and insecurity Urban centers have become concentrated areas of unemployment filled with young men trying, against all odds, to find jobs and fill their time with meaningful occupations At the heart of Adeline Masquelier s groundbreaking book is the fada a space where men gather to escape boredom by talking, playing cards, listening to music, and drinking tea As a place in which new forms of sociability and belonging are forged outside the unattainable arena of work, the fada has become an integral part of Niger s urban landscape By considering the fada as a site of experimentation, Masquelier offers a nuanced depiction of how young men in urban Niger engage in the quest for recognition and reinvent their own masculinity in the absence of conventional avenues to self realization In an era when fledgling and advanced economies alike are struggling to support meaningful forms of employment, this book offers a timely glimpse into how to create spaces of stability, respect, and creativity in the face of diminished opportunities and precarity.
