The Shiites of Lebanon and Ottoman History

The Shiites of Lebanon and Ottoman History

Webinar Arabicities. Arab Presence in Turkey, Stefan Winter "The Shiites of Lebanon and Ottoman History"

Moderator : Seda Altuğ (Lecturer at the Atatürk Institute for Modern Turkish History at Boğaziçi University, Istanbul)

This presentation will revisit the author's monograph "The Shiites of Lebanon under Ottoman Rule, 1516-1788", based on his award-winning Chicago dissertation and published by Cambridge University Press in 2010, ahead of its publication in Turkish translation by Koç University Press later this year. In reframing the work specifically for a modern Turkish audience, it will highlight the discursive associations made by the Ottoman state between the Lebanese Shiites and the Kızılbaş, and try to suggest ways in which the particular experiences of the Lebanese Shiites help illuminate the situation of non-orthodox populations throughout the Empire.

Stefan Winter (PhD Chicago, 2002) is professor of history at Koç University in Istanbul and at the Université du Québec in Montréal. His research revolves around local Ottoman administration in northern and western Syria and on Ottoman relations with Arab and Kurdish tribal populations in particular. His current monograph project is an investigation of the Ottoman "desert emirate" (çöl beyilik) of northern Syria and Mesopotamia in the early modern period.
This webinar Arabicities 4 is part of a series on Arab Presence in Turkey and is co-organized with the American University of Beirut, the Atatürk Institute for Modern Turkish History at Boğaziçi University, Istanbul, Laboratoire de recherche historique Rhône-Alpes (LARHA, Lyon), the Swedish Research Institute in Istanbul.
