OTTOMAN TOPOLOGIES SPATIAL EXPERIENCE IN AN EARLY MODERN EMPIRE AND BEYOND Stanford University Department of History May 16-17, 2014 The Department of History at Stanford University will host a conference entitled “Ottoman Topologies: Spatial Experience in an Early Modern Empire and Beyond” on May 16 and 17, 2014. The conference will bring 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 will 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 will also include a panel that considers new possibilities of digital technology in space-related historical studies.
