The Glue of Prepared Food

The geographer Mabogunje (1990: 128) has observed that one of the early problematics of African urbanization focused on "demographic development and the emergent social differentiation among urban Africans." This raised interest in so-called segregational issues, such as the ethnic segregation that grew out of migration histories and that was kept alive by colonial policies. More recently, writers like Hannerz (1987, 1992; see also Mintz & Price 1985) have moved on to consider the manner in which separate cultures come together and hybridize, suggesting that "this world of movement and mixture [as] a world in creolisation" (Hannerz 1987: 551) is a promising metaphor for the African urban milieu as part of the globalizing world.

At one end of the creolizing continuum there is the culture of the center, with its greater prestige ... at the other end are the cultural forms of the farthest periphery, probably in greater parochial variety. (Hannerz 1992: 264)
Groups organize themselves along this continuum, "mixing, observing each other, and commenting on each other" (ibid.: 265). There are asymmetries of cultural flow, with different points of origin and reach.
