Fieldwork for dissertation will take place in Erie, Pennsylvania and Nikolaevsk, Alaska with communities of Russian Old Believers (Staroveri). Primary research question asks how can a group be both an ethno-religious, isolated enclave locally and a transnational diasporic network globally?
Perhaps some of us can offer advise or assistance.

Tom,

Believe it or not, it wouldn't be the first time that we've invited someone working on a dissertation to log onto the forum and pick our collective brain.

Many years,

Neil

Here is a copy of the abstract describing Amber Silva's Master's thesis on the Alaskan Old Believers entitled
"Unsettling Diaspora: the Old Believers of Alaska".

If you click on the PDF symbol, you can read the whole thesis.

Actually Tom it is one of their favorite pass times. They have enough knowledge on here to fill a library. You know what Scripture says about remembering what you were told, oral tradition. Well, to me, it is amazing the knowledge that has been handed down from age to age. I was raised Southern Baptist, not really any type of ethnic connection. Coming into a Polish family by marriage, and the Slavic and Middle Eastern by conversion, oral history is an amazing thing. Just say'n! And I'm rambl'n!

Thank you for your comments. I am exchanging emails with Amber Silva, putting her in touch with some Erie Old Believers, and am sending her my collection of materials on the priested and priestless communities in Erie and Poland where their ancestors originated. She is off to a good start.
