Title: The Haj in the Urbs Prima in Indis: The Regulation of Pilgrims and Pilgrim Traffic in Bombay, 1880 to 1914
Authors: Lombardo, Nicholas Sebastian
Advisor: Lewsis, Robert
Department: Geography
Keywords: Bombay

Regulation
Issue Date: 2-Aug-2012
Abstract: In this thesis I argue that the management of Muslim pilgrims and the Haj traffic in Bombay was the result of the localization of an international regime of regulation aimed at controlling Hajis as mobile threats to public health and imperial security. International scientists, doctors, and politicians problematized Hajis as diseased, dangerous and disorderly through discourse produced in print material and at international conferences taking place across the globe. Local, elite concerns over their own power, Bombay’s urban spatial order, and the city’s international trade shaped the way these larger global and imperial projects were implemented in Bombay. These findings point to the importance of local, place-based social, political and economic structures in the day-to-day governance of empire.
