Join Pitt’s World History Center on Wednesday November 3 at 12:00 pm for a virtual roundtable about peripheral, contested, and extractive geographies in the Ottoman and post-Ottoman Empire, moderated by University of Pittsburgh professor Gregor Thum. The roundtable features: Ana Fumurescu (Graduate Student Fellow, World History Center), Ari Şekeryan (Research Affiliate, World History Center) and Ana Sekulić, Center for Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies (REEES) Postdoctoral Fellow.

The roundtable participants will discuss their current research and how it relates to Ottoman and post-Ottoman spaces. A discussion will follow about the concept of Ottoman/post-Ottoman space and the degree to which it is a useful concept to make sense of the space and its societies.

This event is part of a series titled "The Limits of Networks in World History: Peripheries and Beyond." Please see the attached PDF for more information about the series.
