POLI 251 - Reorderings

1 unit(s)
In the mid 19th century, the Ottoman Empire undertook a series of policies, known as the Tanzimat reforms, designed in part to harmonize Ottoman imperial structures with ideas and practices of European political modernity. Tanzimat literally means rearrangement, reorganization, or reordering. This course interprets various and selected facets of the Ottoman and Turkish experiences of political reordering, including ongoing transformations in political structure, ideology, and culture, and axes of prolonged contestation around issues such as nationalism, Europe, the relation between Islam and power, and state-society relations. Andrew Davison.

Not offered in 2017/18.
