(p.294) Chapter 10 Evictions
The Graves of Tarim

Engseng Ho

University of California Press

This chapter examines how the concerns of the Hadrami homeland, now sequestered within national and local containers, continue to be disputed in terms that little acknowledge the parochial status to which Hadramawt has been consigned, in a world of nation-states. It compares the coming-of-age of the new nations out of imperial tutelage to the process of evictions. The chapter suggests that these evictions can be recounted in a language of names, which is perhaps a fitting way to end our account of genealogy and mobility across the Indian Ocean.
