Thema der Dissertation: Intimate connections - Conjugal affection amid Gilgit's high mountains, Islamic doctrines and mobile phones

Kommentar: This evening scene in the house of an extended family in a mountain village in Gilgit-Baltistan, northern Pakistan, unfolds different layers of intimate connections: The relaxed and protected familiarity of female companionship; the connection mobile phones potentially facilitate between women and men outside the very walls of the family compound; and the close relationship of the researcher with her protagonists during fieldwork which enables such insight into private spheres.
