13 September 2019
Congratulations to Dr Ali Coşkun Tunçer, who has been awarded funding from the UCL Global Engagement Fund for the collaborative project "Housing and urban inequality in the Ottoman Empire, c.1500-1914".
UCL History is delighted to announce that Dr Ali Coşkun Tunçer has been awarded funding from the UCL Global Engagement Fund for the collaborative project Housing and urban inequality in the Ottoman Empire, c.1500-1914.
This is a collaborative project with Dr Gürer Karagedikli who is based at the History Department of the Middle East Technical University in Ankara, Turkey.
The project investigates the urban inequality in the Ottoman Empire by using evidence from Islamic courts for five major Ottoman cities (Istanbul, Izmir, Bursa, Ankara, Antep).
This research will shed light on trends in the living standards and changes in the affordability of houses for different ethnoreligious groups in the Ottoman Empire across five centuries. As part of this project, a one-day workshop at Middle East Technical University in Ankara will bring together scholars in Turkey working on the economic and social history of the Ottoman Empire.
