A. suggests that when we produce spatial reconstructions, we consider the bits of data not only as pieces of a big-picture puzzle, but also as nodes through which many stories and structures are registered and told. She considers how myths, rituals and practices are repeated in disparate places (place contagion) and how a single site can be thought of as a place of diffusion through which disparate processes occur. To illustrate the first she looks at how various colonizers have mythologized the African body. To discuss the second she refers to her work in the Kano palace. - (SLD)
