We have a particular interest in those whose work takes an expansive, trans-regional view of the Ottoman Empire. We are looking for scholarship on phenomena like climate, environment, military power, consumer culture, or international trade, as embedded in contacts between the Ottoman provinces and the Ottoman center, as well as entanglements between the Ottoman Empire and the wider early modern world.
