The website “Ottoman History” is open for historians, art historians, … who are doing research on all different aspects of Ottoman History and its manifestations in Europe (prints, art, diplomatic relations, theatre, etc.). The purpose is to publish interesting points of view, small articles, open up discussions on Ottoman History. The interpretation of the concept Ottoman history is rather open. It can be in relation to other cultures e.g. European culture, the Iranian culture, etc.
Connected to this website is the Linkedin group “Ottoman history”. The idea of this group is to work on a network to exchange ideas and ultimately make publications together or meet in conferences.
