Ottoman Refugees and the World they Helped to Make, 1870-1970
Stages of Global Migration
The routes of migration in the “long” twentieth century form passages through which not only people have changed their location, but also the material and immaterial goods which they have taken with them. In policy-making circles today, representations of migration can freeze positive memories of that which needs preservation or melancholic memories of often dramatic, multiple levels of migration experience taking place in a distant world. In an attempt to advocate greater sensitivity to these various experiences in one migratory story, Isa Blumi proposes to bring historic perspective.
