Table ronde


Over the past two decades, the historiographical production of the history of the Ottoman Empire has seen profound renovations and a remarkable prosperity. The internationalization of research has promoted the establishment of cross-dialogues among the nationalist productions of the different post-Ottoman states. Moreover, being aware of the impact of Orientalism, Western researchers have leaned towards their own historiography in regard to this area (Ottoman, Turkish, Oriental, etc.). As a result, there is a vast wave of critical reflection on the diverse writings and apprehensions of this imperial space. Unfortunately, the lack of consideration for such historiographies produced in Caucasian and Central Asian countries, is important to underline. Either the effect of the compartmentalization of academic fields and of languages’ obstacle, the way which the countries of the Caucasus and Central Asia have perceived and still perceive today the Ottoman past, is quite a dead angle, that this round table intends to contribute to go over. Many questions might be raised: are they facing a renewed interest in this past, as a number of Middle Eastern countries? What role does Russian historiographical traditions play in the production of this knowledge? What kind of discourse do these countries produce regarding the Ottoman past? Does the state of diplomatic relations between these countries and Turkey, have an impact on it? Are Pan-Turkism and Pan-Islamism still a current issue today and do they affect the perception of this past?
