The First Levantine Conference in Istanbul

Gala Dinner €30 from Eventbrite

Pera House, Beyoğlu

The First Conference on Levantine History organised by the Levantine Heritage Foundation will take place in Istanbul in November 2014.

It is hoped that the research presented at the conference will provide a deeper understanding of the mixed identities of the peoples of the Ottoman Empire, and go some way towards answering the question: “Who were the Levantines?”

Participants include Philip Mansel, Paolo Girardelli, John Freely, Emre Aracı and Caroline Finkel.
