'Oturdugu Ahır Sekisi, Çağırdıgı İstanbul Türküsü'

Çelebioğlu Abalı, A. Zekiye
In Hacıbektaş, a rural town of central Anatolia, a local proverb ("where he lives is an ahır sekisi, what he sings is an İstanbul song") implies that an ahır sekisi house is a most indigenous element for the area. However, only two unmodified examples of this house form exist today in the town, These two examples, surveyed by the author some time ago, do not have any resemblance with the known Anatolian traditional house types. They could have been coincidental examples only, but the local proverb denied this possibility. Therefore, it was necessary to introduce these unique examples to the scholars of the field. Sketches and measured drawings of the ahır sekisi houses are presented. To explain their uniqueness and their location in the rural house compound, sketches of more widely used house forms and organizations of several compounds are also given. The two examples of an extinct house form in Hacıbektaş, may owe their existence to the semi-independent status of the town during the Ottoman reign. A brief discussion about the historical and cultural conditions of Hacıbektaş in this period is included, to give an impression of the life style that gave rise to the houses surveyed.

An U-shaped courtyard, where two kümbets are situated, is positioned in the north side of the prayer hall. In addition, some wall frag...
The Historical Roots of Autonomy in Nicaragua's Caribbean Coast: From British Colonialism to Indigenous Autonomy
Baracco, Luciano (2016-07-01)
This article reviews historical forms of localised government on Nicaragua's Caribbean coast and contrasts them with the contemporary struggle to attain a communal form of autonomy undertaken by the region's indigenous population. It suggests that the contemporary autonomy process shares few features with the historical precedents of localised government which are commonly invoked to legitimise it. Instead, its roots can be located in the emergence of a Moskitian nationalism amongst the Miskitu which occurr...
