The workshop will follow the format of the earlier workshop held in Hamburg in 2017: a two-day workshop surveying new approaches to the environmental history of the Ottoman Empire and Turkey and delving into methodological and theoretical discussions while being open to a wide range of temporal and geographic coverage. CfP of the workshop will be announced in January 2019. Stay tuned...
New Book on Ottoman Environmental History
The Ottomans were remarkable not just for their political and military success but also for their desire and ability to understand, adapt, modify and manage different environments. Seeds of Power: Explorations in Ottoman Environmental History, edited by Onur İnal and Yavuz Köse, aims to take an original look at the Ottomans through the lens of environmental history. In its wide-ranging essays, environmental perspectives illuminate diverse historical processes and events in the long history of the Ottoman Empire. The volume, with a foreword by Alan Mikhail, will come out in March 2019 and will be published by the White Horse Press.
