Studies on Istanbul and Beyond : The Freely Papers, Volume 1 Hardback

Edited by Robert G. Ousterhout


Written by recipients of the John Freely Fellowship awarded annually through the American Research Institute in Turkey from a major gift from the Joukowsky Family Foundation of New York to honor a celebrated author of travel and history books, this volume focuses particular attention on the city of Istanbul, its history, and institutions during the Ottoman and Republican periods.

Chapters by young scholars consider the office of the Ottoman Court Historian, opposing voices during the reign of Sultan Suleyman, naming Turkish Sabbatians, Istanbul's population variables, and changes in Turkish tobacco production. Contributors: Emine Fetvac (Department of History of Art, Stanford University), Erbu Turan (Department of History, Fordham University), Cengiz Sisman (Department of History, TOBB-ETU University), Betul Basaran (Department of Philosophy and Religion, University of Chicago), and Ebru Kayaalp (Department of Anthropology, Rice University).
