Kate Wahl, SUP Editor

The Stanford Ottoman World Series showcases cutting-edge interdisciplinary scholarship in Ottoman history from the thirteenth to the nineteenth centuries. The series welcomes projects on the Ottoman World and its environs, engaging global and comparative debates while developing critical perspectives toward dominant historiographical frameworks in Ottoman studies. Books in the series are concerned with three major themes: empire, nature, and knowledge—broadly defined—and the connections among them. Books on empire include, but are not limited to, discussions on political, social, economic, and legal structures, practices, and cultures, as well as imaginations and theories of political power. Books that involve nature address myriad aspects of the environment and its materiality with respect to human and non-human actors and all forms of human-nature relations, along with questions of space and place. Books that engage with knowledge include all kinds of epistemological programs, science and technology cultures, and ways of knowing, recording, preserving, archiving, and representing. The books in this series foster ambitious and innovative scholarship and open new paths in Ottoman studies and beyond.
