Dear H-TURK community, I'd like 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.
