Abstract:Based on interviews with fourteen newspaper vendors and twenty news-stand habitués in Ibadan, Nigeria, this paper considers how newspaper marketing can be seen as a cultural process. More specifically, it examines the character of news-stand habitués, the style and process of newspaper marketing and the import of 'space' and 'performative behaviour' in the construction of the encounter between newspaper vendors and their clients.
