Yildiz, Emrah, Harvard U., Cambridge, MA- To aid research on 'Traffic in Value: A Road Ethnography of Pilgrimage, Contraband Commerce, and Border-Crossing Across Eastern Borders of Turkey,' supervised by Dr. Steven C. Caton

Preliminary Abstract: This research draws upon micro-historical and ethnographic approaches to transnational mobility to examine the increasingly popular Hajj-e Fuqara ('pilgrimage of the poor/modest') route that transports not only pilgrims but also smuggled goods from Iran, through Turkey, to Syria. I will study how a seemingly disparate set of social actors (pilgrims, smugglers, and merchants) employ the bus as a critical vehicle of mobility, and negotiate not only this transforming border, but also the seemingly distinct borders between religion, economy, and politics.
