Mobility and Armenian Belonging in Contemporary Turkey

Migratory Routes and the Meaning of the Local
  • By Salim Aykut Öztürk
Product Description

What remains and becomes Armenian in a historically informed moment of increased mobility? Taking an anthropological approach using ethnographic data collected from Turkey and Armenia spanning over almost 10 years, this book focuses on themes of migration, human movement, community making and the conditions that reproduce contexts of mobility and place-making.

Looking at case studies ranging from drivers between Armenia and Turkey, undocumented migrants deported from Turkey now living in Armenian cities and Armenian migrants in contemporary Istanbul neighbourhoods, the author provides a vivid description of contemporary non-Muslim life in Turkey through the lives of Armenian citizens of Turkey and undocumented migrants from Armenia, as well as Greek, Jewish and Kurdish communities.

The author provides both a critical account of how historical and more contemporary forms of violence and structural discrimination have targeted Armenians in the country, and also focuses on the re-articulations and the appropriation of a sense of belonging by these and other minority communities.
