Advanced Historical Literature: Middle East


About the Course:

This seminar is intended to give graduate students an overview of the historiography of the early
modern Ottoman Empire beginning roughly with the fall of Constantinople in 1453 and ending
with the early nineteenth century. The readings selected represent a drop in the sea of a
very large subject. The course focuses on the Arab provinces and, to some degree, the
imperial center, at the expense of the Balkan provinces and relations with European and Muslim
powers, each of which could constitute a field in itself.


No pre-requisites have been entered for this course.
