HIST7363: Economy and State in the Ottoman Empire, 1800-1914

Dr Coşkun Tunçer

This module examines the major themes in the history of economic change in the Middle East and the Balkans from a comparative perspective during c.1800-1914. The aim of the module is to highlight the historical links between political and economic transformations, and explain different development trajectories in the region. In doing so the course evaluates the impact of global economic trends, and the role of the Ottoman state and institutions in different sectors of the region’s economy. Moreover, in addressing the differences within the region, the course assesses the changing degrees of integration with the world economy and the Ottoman centre, economic consequences of nationalism and modernisation in the Balkans, and colonialism in the Middle East.
