(p.63) Chapter 3 A Resolute Localism
The Graves of Tarim

Engseng Ho

University of California Press

This chapter focuses on the resolute localism of the people of Tarim, one of the largest towns in Hadramawt. It explains that Hadramawt presents a surprising binary valuation of local and foreign and that migration is a chronic feature of Hadrami life. It discusses alienations and the usurpation of local ends and relates a visit to Tarim. It also highlights the high degree of interpenetration of oral and written media in Hadrami social life, to the extent that these media merged into a single discourse to one who works with these sources over time.

Keywords:   Tarim, resolute localism, Hadramawt, migration, alienations, social life, oral media, written media
