Zozan Pehlivan is a Ph.D. student working on the socio-economic history of the early modern Middle East, under the supervision of Prof. Ariel Salzmann. Her research concerns Tribes, Cities and Trade in western Kurdistan during the "long eighteenth century," (1700-1850). That is, rather than studying about manufacturing or consumption within cities or export from the larger ports to the West, her study will help explain how tribal systems provided the infrastructure necessary to maintain this pre-industrial commercial market in the Middle East.
