CGIS: Mostafa Minawi "Arab-Ottoman Imperialists of Istanbul at the Turn of the 20th Century"

Wednesday, March 27, 2024 - 12:30pm to 1:30pm
This lecture is based on Mostafa Minawi, Associate Professor of History and Director of Critical Ottoman and Post-Ottoman Studies at Cornell University, latest book, “Losing Istanbul: Arab-Ottoman Imperialists and the End of Empire.” It is a micro-history of major events that a small Arab-Ottoman community of Istanbul lived through. Following an extended family of Ottoman imperial loyalists, he explores how these men and women experienced and adapted to new realities of increasingly racialized and Turco-centric identitarian categories in Istanbul, in the final years of the Ottoman Empire.
