HIST 635 Research in Popular and Applied History V : Topics in 19th Century World and Ottoman-Turkish History
The fifth of a series of comparative and applied workshops in the analysis of elements of popular historical consciousness, including fiction, popular journals and comic strips as well as history education materials. Focuses not only on Turkey but on Southeast Europe as a whole, and creates space for exploring the possibilities of defining and producing alternative educational materials, including textbooks and/or theme kits for teachers and students. More specifically, HIST 635 is devoted to critical investigations of existing textbook accounts of the 19th century "reform period" in Late Ottoman history, as well as the possibilities of improving on such treatments. Does not count as a 600 -coded research seminar for graduate students registered in regular Sabancı University degree programs.
