Dear Colleagues, 

I would like to inform you about an upcoming panel organized by the Ottoman and Turkish Studies Initiative at NYU (OTS-NYU) on Friday March 5, 2021 at 12:30 (EST). Below you can find the abstract, as well as the link to register for the panel. 

This panel is the first event of a series of panels and lectures that will take place in the next several months under the rubric of the 2nd Mid-Atlantic Ottoman Studies Workshop

Panel Title: Space, Place, and Global Ottoman Institutions 

Panel Abstract: This panel will explore key social and political spaces and institutions present throughout the Ottoman Empire. Panelist Emin Lelić (Associate Professor of History at Salisbury University) will center his presentation around the Ottoman household as the structural heart of the Ottoman social, political, economic, and military organization; Leyla Amzi-Erdoğdular (Associate Professor of History, Rutgers University-Newark) will analyze the importance of the Bosnian Islamic Community as a model modern Islamic Institution; and Naz Yücel (Ph.D. candidate in History, George Washington University) will investigate the royal and viceregal property ownership throughout the long nineteenth century. Our commentator, Burçak Özlüdil (Associate Dean of Albert Dorman Honors College, NJIT), will draw on each of these presentations to speak on some of the relevant themes around Ottoman Institutions that emerge throughout the presentations. The panel will be followed by a 30-minute Q&A session.
