To: H-GENDER-MIDEAST@h-net.msu.edu Dear H-GENDER MIDEAST subscribers, I'm pleased to announce the release of Ep. #135 of Ottoman History Podcast, which discusses the history and sociolinguistics of Lubunca, a Turkish slang variety used mainly among Istanbul's LBGTQ communities. Our guest Nicholas Kontovas uses textual and lexical analysis to trace the origins of this jargon, which as he argues, must be no later than the late Ottoman/early Republican period: http://www.ottomanhistorypodcast.com/2013/12/istanbul-slang.html Ottoman History Podcast is an internet radio program in English and Turkish featuring weekly interviews with scholars and researchers studying the Ottoman Empire and the modern Middle East. Thank you for your interest. Best, Chris Gratien PhD Candidate Georgetown University firstname.lastname@example.org -- --
