What can kinship tell us about the development and organization of one of the largest state petroleum companies in the world and its subsequent privatization? How can attention to kinship sentiments inform our understandings of the transnational movements of people, capital, and production that are at the core of contemporary globalization? Can an understanding of kinship and marriage help us comprehend the meanings and limits of nationality and citizenship or the expansion of one of the fastest-growing religions in the world? These are some of the many questions that were the subjects of vibrant discussions during the advanced seminar “The Difference Kinship Makes: Rethinking the Ideologies of Modernization.”
