more Die 2019 exakt 100 Jahre alte Staatsgrenze durch die Ötztaler Alpen hat ein bewegendes 20. Das machte ein ausgeapertes Fahrrad am Rotmoosferner deutlich, das im Sommer 2018 auf 3.000 Meter Höhe geborgen wurde: Nachforschungen zu den Umständen, wie ein Rad an diesen Ort gekommen sein könnte, eröffneten tiefe Einblicke in die teils dramatischen Geschichten rund um den Alpenhauptkamm, die von der Trennung von Familien über halsbrecherische Schmuggleraktionen, Flucht und Totschlag bis hin zu Sprengstoff- und Waffentransporten im Rahmen des Südtiroler „Freiheitskampfes“ reichen.

Ein interdisziplinäres Autorenteam beleuchtete diesen spannenden Aspekt der Zeitgeschichte, und ein Team von Archäologen setzte den Fund vom Rotmoosferner in einen weiteren Kontext: Zahlreiche Gletscherfunde gaben während der letzten Jahrzehnte spannende Einblicke in die Geschichte der Menschheit frei – und das starke Abschmelzen der Gletscher lässt in den kommenden Sommern noch zahlreiche weitere Funde erwarten. more This research project focuses on the complexities of the illicit tea trade as it relates to the American Revolution. Proudhon’s anarchism and its descendant theories provide frameworks in which archaeologists can critique and classify acts of resistance in inherent oppressive systems.
Relying on ethnographic work, archival research, and conceptual analyses, authors challenge the monolithic perceptions of smuggling as merely exploitative, inherently criminal, violent and male, by documenting the experiences of the people whose actions facilitate migration into Europe and the United States, across Africa, the Americas and the Pacific, and shedding light on everyday practices and interactions of mobility and their criminalization by the state.

Whilst the Régie of opium constituted an economic foundation of French Indochina, its importance was challenged by the existence of a permanent smuggling ring. Ships’ crews, governors, and merchants took advantage of the islands’ physical, political, and legal environments to effectively launder goods, ships, and people that were actively involved in these activities.

I will examine a phenomenon that has played a decisive role in the social life of the Kurdish regions since 1930s, namely qaçaxçîtî or "smuggling", trying to demonstrate how it constitutes a form of infra-politics for the Kurds during "the years of silence".
In this chapter , I demonstrate how despite the military victory of the Turkish state over Kurdish revolts, these latter continued to exercise different forms of resistance - what James C. I will consider qaçaxçîtî as a "spatial friction" against the state, particularly in Lice, a district of Diyarbakir province, and emphasize the intermingling of this phenomenon with the dynamics of larger social transformations that shake the traditional structures in their foundations.
