    Elites, Property Rights, and Economic Growth in Developing Countries
    How do firms ensure their contracts will be enforced in environments often characterized by weak rule of law? Where does the protection of property rights come from, and who does it exist for? When do economic actors carve out their own rule of law? Answers to these understudied questions have enormous implications for economic growth in the developing world. I argue that domestic political competition among elites can bring about surprising advancements in the protection of property rights. I highlight t…

    Non-English Campaign Strategies: A Proposed Model for Language as Persuasion
    In the U.S., non-English modes of political communication are thought to have an implied persuasive effect on social cognition, capable of influencing how an individual processes information. For example, President Obama aired television ads on Spanish networks for both his 2008 and 2012 campaigns. The passing and cursory assumption is that these non-English strategies resonated with Latino voters. Given the significant role that non-English political appeals play in American politics, the initial questi…

    Crossing Borders in the Early Modern Mediterranean: Europeans in Seventeenth-century Ottoman Galata
    In 1617, Fatma Hatun, an ordinary Ottoman woman, agreed to pay a certain amount of money to the Venetian merchant Pavlo to save her son, a war captive imprisoned in Chios Island. Based on the lived experiences of Europeans, my work examines such instances of contact, interdependent relations, and the fluidity of social bonds between Europeans and Ottomans in 17th-century Galata, a commercial and diplomatic district of Istanbul. Merchants, diplomats, sailors, missionaries, and travelers acquired official d…
