The readings will include histories, hagiographies, literary texts, legal documents, court registers, etc. Participants will reside at the RCAC and dinner will be included four evenings a week. To apply, you must have studied Ottoman Turkish for at least a year and knowledge of Arabic and/or Persian is also valued. Click here to apply. Applications close April 15, 2015. 

You can also apply for the Istanbul Through the Ages programme (June 29 – July 21) or the Cappadocia in Context programme (June 11 – June 26). Good luck!
