Workshop on Environmental History of the Ottoman Empire

29.05.-30.05.2020, Workshop, OI Beirut

Beachten Sie zu dieser Veranstaltung bitte auch die aktuellen Informationen des OI Beirut.

The Orient-Institut Beirut will host an interdisciplinary workshop to examine the environmental history of the Ottoman Empire, which is an emerging and dynamic field in the Ottoman studies. 

In the Ottoman context, the commonly prevailing holistic worldview leads us to analyze the relations of a human being to his/her environment in a broader spectrum of relations, i.e. human-divine relations, human-human relations, human-world relations. The totality of the network of these relations supplies us with a quite useful analytical instrument for an understanding of this newly emerging filed. With this perspective, the workshop is open to researchers from all subfields of Ottoman studies especially to historians, geographers, theologians, natural scientists, sociologists, political scientists, botanists, zoologists, who show interest in the Ottoman environmental history. Considering the wide territory of the Ottoman Empire, contributions related to the history of any part of it is also most welcome.
