A Workshop on: “Ottoman Municipalities-Governing the Late Ottoman Cities”

The conference seeks to engage with a number of questions that will provide a forum for academic discussion on the question of Ottoman municipalities and its institutional development.Namely we would like to discuss the question of the municipal reform and the effects of the reforms on the Ottoman cities. We seek answers to the question of how the reforms were perceived by Istanbul – the center – and by the local elites – the province; what was the role of the local elites in the urban governance and how the municipalities functioned – mechanisms of politics by which the cities of the late Ottoman Empire were governed. The conference will also seek to improve the debate on the methodology of research of urban history and the question of sources.
