Conference on The Ottoman Conquest and Knowledge: A Transcultural History

Medieval Studies at Cambridge

The aim of this conference is to further our understanding of the ways in which knowledge was transformed, exchanged, diversified, expanded, and suppressed during the period beginning with the Ottoman
conquest of the Eastern Mediterranean. The broad (transcultural) scope of this conference is represented by scholars from diverse fields who have been brought together to discuss the far-reaching
and varied impact of the Ottoman conquest.

The conference will take place at Newnham College, Cambridge, July 6-7, 2017.
