Abstract

Despite the traditional domination of state-centered approaches and narratives to migration governance, cities are actually the main human habitat that shape all aspects of mobility and its dynamics. This paper studies Izmir as a cosmopolitan port city during Ottoman Empire era and examines how it has socio-economically transformed, thoroughly reconfigured today with population movements both domestically and internationally. The study uses oral history complemented by an in-depth research on city plans, maps and photos in the archives and combine them with the notion of collective memory. It focuses specifically on the “Karantina” and “Bornova” districts of Izmir which were the center of ethnic heterogeneity for centuries by peacefully hosting Turks, Jews, and Greeks.
