Kaleb Herman is a PhD candidate in the History Department at the University of California, Los Angeles. He focuses on the political economy of the tobacco industry in the Ottoman province of Selânik in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. In analyzing the boom in tobacco cultivation during this period, his dissertation engages larger discussions of social relations framed by a capitalist market-oriented economy, legal change, and resistance within the empire.
