Graduate Workshop in Ottoman Studies at the University of Oxford, May 11, 2013
The Ottoman Studies Group at Oxford (OSGO), in cooperation with Ertegun House and the Middle East Center (MEC) at St. Antony’s College, is organizing a one-day graduate workshop in Ottoman Studies at the University of Oxford on May 11th, 2013. This one-day workshop aims to provide a forum for graduate students who focus on the Ottoman Empire from the late 18th to the early 20th century to present their research, exchange ideas and develop scholarly networks. Keynote speaker Professor Benjamin Fortna will open the workings of this workshop.
We invite applications by all graduate students, who work in the humanities and social sciences. We particularly welcome applications that explore new approaches to Ottoman Studies in the following themes:
– Policies and reforms
– Global transference of knowledge / intellectual history
– Identity (ethnic, religious, gender, etc.)
Presentations should be approximately 15 minutes.
Please send your proposal (max. 300 words) for a paper along with your CV to OSGO2013@gmail.com, stating your university, department, degree you are studying for, the year you are in and contact details in your e-mail message.
The deadline for submitting an abstract is Friday, March 8th, 2013.
