SPATIAL EXPERIENCE IN AN EARLY MODERN EMPIRE AND BEYOND


Department of History, Stanford University

May 16-17, 2014

The conference brings together scholars of Ottoman history who have been working on space-related themes in dialogue with the spatial turn in social sciences and humanities. The papers discuss how men and women in the Ottoman world imagined, experienced, built, mapped, and administered space in early modern times and how we can understand these imaginers, movers, builders, geographers, and administrators. The conference includes a panel that considers new possibilities of digital technology in space-related historical studies.
