  1. Dear all,
    I am Gabriella, a student of Anthropology and Ethnology at University Ca’ Foscari in Venice.
    I am writing my degree thesis on Yoruba in the web today, how they represent themselves through their websites. I am doing this for the websites which I was able to find for Nigeria, Canada, USA, Brasil, UK.

    I’d be really grateful if you could answer the following questions, which will be part of my dissertation.
    Would you be so kind to answer me, and help me in my work? That would be really appreciated. Whatever further information on me and my work you may need, please let me know.

    1) Why did you decide to set this website up, which was the aim of it?
    2) Which themes does it intend to underline?
    3) Which means do you mainly use (videos, interviews, photographs)?
    4) Who manages the website? Only Yoruba people or also people from other groups?
    5) Do you consider it a good mean to keep a link among all the Yoruba in your Country?
    6) Do you think the website reflects the actual situation and usages and customs in your Country?
    7) In what do you think it differs from traditional Yoruba styles and ways?
    8) Which are the peculiarities of Yoruba people in your country in contrast with Yoruba people in Africa?
    if you have any consideration to raise up please do that! It will definitely help me in my work. Whatever you’d like to underline or say please do it, that will be much appreciated!

    I am looking forward to hearing from you,
    Thank you!
    Gabriella
