Ottoman Crossings Osmanische Schnittstellen

Ottoman Crossings Osmanische Schnittstellen International lecture series on the Ottoman Empire Internationale Vortragsreihe zum Osmanischen Reich
(1)

Research on the Ottoman Empire is a broad field full of intersections: between men, women, and youths; between poetic expression and political action; between languages, cultures, and religions; between peace, war, and genocide; between past and present—and last but not least, from an academic perspective, between history and literature. This six-week international lecture series brings together scholars from Turkey, Greece, France, Germany, and Austria to survey this broad field in all its richness and in light of the most current research questions. As its theoretical leitmotiv, the series takes the literary (re-) production of the historical, or the question how history is created, preserved and reinvented by literary means. Die Forschung zum Osmanischen Reich ist ein weites Feld voller Schnittstellen: zwischen Männern, Frauen und Jünglingen, zwischen poetischem Ausdruck und politischem Handeln, zwischen Sprachen, Kulturen und Religionen, zwischen Frieden, Krieg und Völkermord, zwischen Vergangenheit und Gegenwart—und nicht zuletzt, aus akademischer Sicht, zwischen Geschichte und Literatur. Diese sechswöchige internationale Vortragsreihe bringt Forscher aus der Türkei, Griechenland, Frankreich, Deutschland und Österreich zusammen, um diesem weiten Feld in all seinem Reichtum und mit Bezug auf die aktuellsten Forschungsfragen zu begegnen. Als theoretisches Leitmotiv dient dabei die literarische (Re-) Produktion des Historischen oder die Frage, wie Geschichte auf literarische Wege erschaffen, erhalten und wiedererfunden wird.

PICT Voices #1: Mortaza Behboudi, Moria Refugee Camp

PICT Voices🎈
Podcast Interview Conducted by PICT Faculty Members
As you probably noticed, the Paris Institute for Critical Thinking (PICT) has intensified its online outreach since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic. While we reject online teaching since we believe that critical and creative thinking best happens face to face, we are determined to support our community through other forms of online outreach such as podcasts and social media campaigns.
PICT Voices is an interview series conducted by PICT faculty with notable members of the broader PICT community. Our goal is to present our community with a variety of voices across the spectrum of the humanities and critical, creative thinking. To achieve this, we will interview a broad spectrum of thinkers ranging from scholars to journalists.
Our first interview is with Mortaza Behboudi, Journalist (Moria Refugee Camp, Lesbos, Greece) by Evrim Emir Sayers & David Selim Sayers (Paris, France) Thursday, March 26, 2020

PICT Increases Online Offerings during the Coronavirus Pandemic🎈

The humanities require a human touch: when we are face to face, we model and emulate critical thinking strategies in real time, achieving an “aha-effect” that distance learning just can’t match. This is why PICT has currently suspended its academic program rather than switch to online learning.
Nonetheless, we are increasing our support for the PICT community via free online content such as videos, podcasts, book clubs, and artistic performances. Please like our page and sign up for our e-newsletter to keep up to date!

Bemerkungen

Due to the strong connections between the Ottoman Empire and Germany/Austria, there should be Turkish war texts in German translation from the time. one example follows. Aka Gündüz writes about the libyan war, Jakub Kadri about WW I. From 'Türkische Erzähler', edited by Carl Frank, München 1920.
