In the popular memory of peasants and city folk alike, 1915 was the Year of the
Locust ('am alJarad). Even four generations later, the locust invasion continues to
evoke the combined memory of natural disasters and the manmade devastation
of war. These events erased four centuries of a rich and complex Ottoman

say that their ...

... the individuals are small and swallowed up by powerful skylight above eye-
level (DeBlieu 1998: 83). People usually fail to notice a swarm unless the
