The 15th Great Lakes Ottomanist Workshop (GLOW) will be held at the University of Chicago on March 30 & March 31, 2018. GLOW is an annual gathering of scholars based in the region who study the history, literatures, and cultures of the Ottoman Empire. This year's workshop will launch with a lecture by Prof. Nükhet Varlık (Rutgers University) on March 30th at 4:30 pm.
At this point, we would like to make a formal call for submissions. Please send an abstract of no more than 200 words to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, February 19th. GLOW is an excellent opportunity to share your research and works in progress with your colleagues- graduate students are especially encouraged to apply.
We encourage contributions that focus on the Ottoman city as a site of authority, violence, leisure, as well as a space for intellectual and cultural production, and inter-communal and gendered encounters. Submissions unrelated to these themes are also welcome and will be given full consideration.
Due to budgetary restrictions, participants are asked to provide for their travel and lodging. We will do our best to find hosts for graduate student participants. Please contact us if you are interested.
