    A Commodity of a Certain Taste: An Ethnography of the Ceylon Tea Industry
    While studies have looked at "taste," its composition and social effects, in the context of the circulation and consumption of goods, this project seeks to locate taste within the production process of Sri Lanka's national commodity: Ceylon tea is a brand name of immense export value, of historical, financial and symbolic significance to the island. However, while tea enjoys growing global popularity, demand for the high quality but costly Ceylon brew is in decline. While individual stakeholders stand div…

    The Party Family: The Private Life of Communists in Twentieth-Century Chile
    The Party Family, the title of my doctoral dissertation, encapsulates the multiple layers of this research on communist activism in twentieth-century Chile. First and foremost, this is a study of communist families, their internal dynamics and their private practices. Second, it is an invitation to think of communist parties as extended families, with networks of solidarity and hierarchical relationships based on gender and age. Finally, it is an attempt to engage with, and speak to, the larger audience o…

    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…

    Blackness, Work, and Repression: Street Children at Play in Guayaquil, Ecuador
    In Guayaquil, Ecuador’s largest city, street children line the traffic intersections, enmeshed in the city’s landscape: juggling tennis balls, washing windshields, selling flowers and oranges, and begging passers-by for money. Although a majority of these “street” children do not live on the streets, their work places them there and links them to images of poverty and childhood in an attempt to inspire compassion from those driving by: they frown as they walk from one car window to the next and s…
