- n. The process of rendering nomadic; adoption of a nomadic life.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
For a model of sedentarization as a processual, voluntary, and flexible response to changing local circumstances, see Salzman (1980), p. 14, which is useful because it prompts a reciprocal characterization of nomadization and its forms as adaptive strategies rather than teleologically.
For more on nomadization specifically, see Khazanov, ch.
Note 7: Incidents of nomadization such as that experienced by Muhin Shah are far less frequently discussed in anthropological literature than episodes of sedentarization.
