Eniola Afolayan

[Draft Bio]

Eniola Afolayan is a PhD student in the Department of Anthropology. Her research interests focus on African Traditional Religions (ATR), specifically Yoruba Indigenous Religion, and its relationship to world religions such as Christianity and Islam. Specifically, she is interested in understanding how practitioners of these religious traditions understand themselves in relation to these seemingly more powerful counterparts as well as how Yoruba practitioners understand the Afro-Atlantic phenomena of Orisha worship that has seemingly taken off and become (and perhaps has always been) it's own thing entirely.
