DAVILA VALDES, Claudia. Historia comparada de dos experiencias migratorias: Coreanos y súbditos del Imperio Otomano en Yucatán (1880-1916). Península [online]. 2010, vol.5, n.2, pp.37-60. ISSN 1870-5766.

This work is a comparative analysis of the migratory experience involving Koreans and subjects of the Ottoman Empire during their first year of residence in the peninsula of Yucatan, a period that was characterized by a region-wide economic boom of henequen (sisal) production. Although these two migrations were contemporaneous, they met completely different realities. In particular, the migratory modality with which they arrived -the free and gradual immigration of the urban Ottomans compared to the pre-arranged status of the more agriculturally inclined Koreans sent as laborers with four year contracts- strongly influenced the economic niches they would carve out, and ultimately defined their destiny in the peninsula.

Keywords : migration; Koreans; Ottomans; Yucatan; Porfiriato.
