AAPTIS 291. Topics in Arabic, Armenian, Persian, Turkish and Islamic Studies.

Section 101 Greeks in Ottoman Society: from Empire(s) to Nation-State

Instructor(s): Tom Papademetriou (apapadem@umich.edu)

Prerequisites & Distribution: (3). (Excl).

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

This course will examine the experience of the Greek people during the period termed, in Greek, the Tourkokratia (Turkish rule) i.e., the period of Ottoman rule from the fourteenth to the twentieth century. It will broadly survey the political history of the Greeks as a component element of the Ottoman empire, their movement for national independence, their nineteenth century apogee in the Ottoman Empire, and finally, nationalism and the nation building project. It will likewise sketch the major social, economic, religious, and intellectual developments throughout these centuries. "Greeks" are defined as the Hellenophone (Greek speaking) element within the Ottoman Empire, scattered geographically from the core territories that will constitute independent Greece, through the villages and towns of Asia Minor, to the imperial capital Istanbul, and throughout the regions of the Eastern Mediterranean. A special focus of the course will be the question of the emergence of a "Greek national identity" within the context of the Ottoman imperial order. The evolution of this identity from Byzantine antecedents, to a construct partially influenced by elements of European Enlightenment thought, will be explored in the relevant historical contexts. Likewise, the self-identifications of Greeks within the dichotomy "west" vs. "east" will be investigated, with careful attention to their various political and cultural significations. This course is intended to plot the historical and cultural experience of Greeks in the early modern and modern periods. As such, it may be seen as complementary to courses in Armenian history, and Ottoman History, and as a sequel to the Byzantine history offerings in the History Department. Conducted as an introductory lecture course, this course is designed to appeal to students interested in themes in Near Eastern Studies (Muslim/Non-Muslims, Ottoman history), as well as sutdents enrolled in the newly formed Modern Greek Program.
