The Ottoman Empire in a Trans-Imperial World

Fri, 04/17/2015 - 2:30pm - 5:00pm
Temple University (The Weigley Room, 914 Gladfelter Hall)

Join a panel of historians as they discuss the Ottoman Empire in the nineteenth century in an international context. How did the Ottoman Empire adapt to a context of inter-imperial competition in an era of European expansion? What can examining the late Ottoman Empire reveal about how small and weak states interpret international law? Bringing an international framework to Ottoman history offers insight into the interconnected nature of the late Imperial world, but it also has the potential to offer new methodologies for the broader realm of international, transnational, and global historiography.
