HIST 4900 - The Ottoman Empire, 1300-1922

3 unit(s)
The seminar examines the history of the Ottoman Empire from 1300 to 1922. It explains the empire’s formation and consolidation, assesses its gradual transformation into an Islamic world power, and deeply explores the complex social, political, and legal interactions of Ottoman subjects with the state from the early modern period through the Empire’s collapse after the First World War. Students will read deeply and discuss drivers of social and economic change within the Ottoman domain while also interpreting the impact of global forces like colonialism, capitalism, and the Enlightenment in an extra-European context. The course grounds students in the foundational texts of Ottomanist scholarship and situates the empire firmly within its global context.

Prerequisites: One year of college-level history or consent of instructor.
