Course Description

This course is about the Ottoman Empire, from its founding in Anatolia in about 1300 to its ultimate collapse in the aftermath of World War I. The course will examine the dynastic, military, economic, political, and social aspects of this empire that, at its pinnacle, controlled vast lands on three continents. Just some of the topics that will be covered are the expansion of the empire into Europe and the Middle East, the evolving relationship between the Muslim empire and its non-Muslim subjects, the conquest of Constantinople in 1453, the reign of Sultan Suleyman "the Magnificent," the causes of imperial decline, the "Sultanate of Women," the failed Siege of Vienna in 1683 and subsequent losses of territories, the desperate attempts to reform and modernize the empire by the "Young Turks" and others, Ottoman involvement in World War I, and the rise of Mustafa Kemal (Ataturk) and the Turkish War of Independence.
