Colloque “Contacts, Encounters, Practices: Ottoman-European Diplomacy, 1500-1800” — St Andrews, Ecosse, 24/06/2014

This one-day international roundtable exploring the practice of European-Ottoman diplomacy in the early modern period will be held at the University of St Andrews on 24 June 2014.

The roundtable will seek to address questions of commercial, social, and intelligence networks and interests and their role in diplomatic practice, as well as the material and ideological logistics of diplomatic encounters. It will also explore the sources available to historians of early modern Ottoman-European diplomacy, and their methodological issues. The fundamental purpose of this roundtable is to provide an intimate space for vigorous discussion of the context and historiography of Ottoman-European diplomacy.

We hope to publish the proceedings as a special issue of a major journal, presenting our discussions and findings to the wider academic community, and hopefully generating more discussion and engagement on the subject of diplomacy between the Ottoman Empire and Europe.

Inscription jusqu’au 31 Mai 2014.
