1. Moutari, Mahaman Sabo. Les emprunts arabes en hausa dans l'oeuvre poétique de Nana Asma'u (1792-1864) : étude linguistique et statistique : Borrowed Arabic in Hausa in the poetic work of Nana Asma’u (1792-1864) : A linguistic and statistical study.

Degree: Docteur es, Linguistique, 2016, Université Michel de Montaigne – Bordeaux III

L’incursion de l’Islam en Afrique subsaharienne à partir du IXe siècle, s’est opérée via le commerce transsaharien entre les peuples d’Afrique du Nord et ceux du Sahel. Ce contact entretenu par les caravanes commerciales entre les deux peuples a engendré l’islamisation progressive de la population hausaphone. Sous l’influence de l’arabe, plusieurs vocables sont introduits dans le lexique du hausa. Cet effet islamique s’accompagne d’une révolution dans la production de la littérature arabe-ajami. Grâce à l’adaptation de l’écriture ajami, Nana Asma’u, une polyglotte de renommée écrit au 18e siècle, plusieurs œuvres poétiques dont la plupart sont en langues - hausa, fulfulde et arabe. Sur la base de ces observations, cette thèse se propose d’analyser les emprunts lexicaux arabes dans les œuvres poétiques de l’auteur, et leur intégration dans la langue hausa. Sur le plan méthodologique, notre travail de recherche s’appuie sur la combinaison de deux méthodes : linguistique et statistique ; ce qui nous a permis d’analyser tous les phénomènes afférant au métissage linguistique et culturel dans les œuvre de Nana Asma’u. Notre corpus comprend 15 œuvres poétiques que nous avons lemmatisées en préalable aux calculs statistiques à l’aide du logiciel Excel. Les principaux résultats obtenus sur les formes graphiques, montrent une fréquence d’utilisation très élevée des emprunts arabes. L’association de l’analyse linguistique et des traitements informatiques, nous a permis ainsi de confirmer, de façon formelle et impartiale, que la plupart des emprunts les plus fréquents relèvent de domaines religieux, et donc liés aux lexiques de situation.

The incursion of Islam in Sub-Saharan Africa from the 19th Century was operated through trans-Saharan commerce between the peoples of North Africa and those of the Sahel. This contact, maintained by the commercial caravans of these two peoples engendered the progressive islamisation of the Hausa-speaking populations. Under the influence of Arabic, several terms were introduced into Hausa lexicon. This Islamic effect comes with a revolution in the production of Arabic-Ajami literature. Thanks to the adaptation of Ajami writing, Nana Asma’u, a renowned polyglot, wrote several poetic works in the 18th Century, most of which are in the Hausa, Fulfulde and Arabic languages. On the basis of these observations, this thesis proposes to analyse the borrowed Arabic lexicon in the poetic works of the author, and their integration into the Hausa language. From the methodological perspective, our research work relies on a combination of two methods: linguistic and statistical; which enable us to analyse all the phenomena relating to linguistic and cultural hybridization in the works of Nana Asma’u. Our corpus is made up of poetic works that we have first of all lemmatized using statistical calculations with the help of Excel software. The principal results, obtained in the form graphs, indicate a frequency of very high usage of words borrowed from Arabic. The association of the linguistic and computer…

2. Campbell, Bruce Kirkwood. Ethics and worldview in identity-based conflict in Nigeria : a practical theological perspective on the religious dimension of violence in Plateau State.

Degree: PhD, 2015, University of Edinburgh

Severe intercommunal violence has repeatedly rocked Plateau State in the first decade of the new millennium, killing thousands of people. Observers have attributed the "crisis" to political, economic and social forces which breed pockets of exclusion and resentment. One notable model explains the violence through a paradigm of privileged "indigenes" who seek to prevent "settlers" from the political rights which would give them the access to the resources managed by the state and the economic opportunities that this entails. While not taking issue with the diagnosed causes of conflict, the Researcher argues that there is a substantial body of evidence being ignored which points to conflict cleavage having opened up along the divide of Christian-Muslim religious identity in a way that the settler-identity model does not sufficiently explain. On the basis that perceptions are as important as facts when it comes to seeking a transformational peace process, he sets out to map world-views, identities and ethics of the warring factions. The researcher, motivated to undertake this research by his direct experience of the 2008 crises and three years experience as an adviser to the EYN's rural development outreach in Adamawa and Borno States, posits that religion may indeed be part of the problem, and mosque and church must be partners to a solution. Forced to limit the scope of his research, he embarks on the initial stages of a practical theological investigation in order to review the conflict from a specifically religious perspective which might assist the Church in its efforts towards peace. Research is focussed on the perceptions of the pew faithful of two denominations in Plateau and Adamawa States and is based on an evaluation of interviews and focus groups which were held across a range of cohorts and settings in order to draw comparative conclusions. Respondents' backgrounds were both rural/urban, young/old, Muslim/Christian, and hailed from various ethnic groups (Berom, Tarok, Kamwe, Fali and HausaFulani). Evaluation methodology drew heavily on Grounded Theory and also included elements of Critical Discourse Analysis. The success of the methodology hinged on the ability of the Researcher to establish rapport and trust with respondents. The applied research methods were foremostly designed to build theory rather than statistically test any hypotheses. The thesis detects evidence not only for the salience of religion as a factor in the way conflict unfolds, but of religion displacing ethnicity as the marker of identity in some locations and age groups. It also demonstrates how ethno-religious narratives stemming from former rural strife between nomadic and sedentary populations and urban conflicts resulting from the competition for indigene rights have been conflated and then further reinforced by the emerging threat of Boko Haram, resulting in a narrative of a unified Muslim programme for conquest, domination and forced conversion. In tune with an undertaking couched in practical theology, this research also…
