Welcome to H-Turk, a member of H-Net Humanities & Social Sciences Online. H-Turk is the H-Net/TSA network for Ottoman and Turkish studies.
Dear List Members,
Kemal Karpat puts the number of Hungarian refugees who fled to the Ottoman Empire at around 16,000. The vast majority of these were troops and various dependents, yet most of the secondary literature focuses on the elite in exile--either framed in terms of foreign or domestic politics, or as agents of modernization.
I'd like to draw the attention of H-Turk's members to a recent job announcement from the Department for Middle Eastern & African History at Tel Aviv University: https://www.h-net.org/jobs/job_display.php?id=48653. While the position is for a scholar of the Arabic speaking Middle East, if your students or colleagues may find it relevant, please forward the ad to them.
The Association for the Study of the Middle East and Africa (ASMEA) is currently seeking paper proposals and panel proposals for presentation at the Seventh Annual ASMEA Conference being held October 30 - November 1, 2014 in Washington, DC.
