“To invent the train is to invent the rail accident of derailment” (Paul Virilio, The Original Accident 10). From the 19th century onward, the intervention of speed upon and across the landscape has created zones of contact between non-human animals and machines that resulted in numerous crashes, deaths, derailments and a wide variety of events that we know as accidents. With the speed of modern time, railway accidents involving humans and animals became a common theme of literary texts, travel books, journal reports, legal discussions, as well as photography and motion pictures.
I wish to announce the publication of my book --
Ruler Visibility and Popular Belonging in the Ottoman Empire, 1808-1908 (Edinburgh: Edinburgh University Press, 2018).
It provides a comprehensive narrative of nineteenth-century Ottoman cultural history.
