Modernity, Identity, and Materiality across the Ottoman Empire: Putting the Pieces Together
The 2000 volume ‘A Historical Archaeology of the Ottoman Empire: Breaking New Ground’ highlighted the challenges of applying the methods and theories from historical archaeology to the eastern Mediterranean, and situated the archaeological study of the Ottoman Empire in global perspective. Starting with exposing the nationalist dynamics that obscured the archaeological finds from the recent past, research quickly expanded to analysis of global commodities, archaeologies of colonialism and capitalism, landscape studies, and architectural histories. Reviewing the pathways to Ottoman Archaeology, this presentation will explore questions that count for the region and for historical archaeology in global perspective.
