- What’s On
Columbia Global Centers | Istanbul, Columbia Global Centers | Tunis and the Sakıp Sabancı Center for Turkish Studies invite you to a live online master class on the “History of Ottoman History” with Zeynep Çelik and A. Tunç Şen, on August 4 at 10:00 am EST.
This workshop follows up on the seminar taught by Zeynep Çelik and Tunç Şen at Columbia University in fall 2019. The seminar was designed to discuss the formation of the Ottoman-Turkish historiography in the late Ottoman and early Republican Turkey. The main goal was to familiarize the students with the foundational works, trends, institutions, and names of the rigorous and essential scholarship in Ottoman-Turkish studies from a multi-disciplinary approach. The online master class will revisit these issues. In addition to the instructors, some of the fall 2019 seminar students will share their perspectives and takeaways with the online master class participants.
Zeynep Çelik is a distinguished professor of Ottoman and Middle Eastern history and architecture at New Jersey Institute of Technology and the Federated Department of History at the NJIT and Rutgers-Newark.
A. Tunç Şen is an Assistant Professor of History at Columbia University.
