Registrar description

The Ottoman and Mughal Empires were among the most powerful state formations in the early modern world, remarkable for their expanse and diversity. Yet, research into the Mughals and the Ottomans remains largely siloed in scholarly niches despite all that the two states shared. This class offers a perspective on the early modern era from the vantage point of these two polities and place major studies in the fields of Mughal and Ottoman history in conversation. Thinking comparatively and with an eye to connections, this seminar facilitates cross-border thinking about the histories and historiographies of the Mughal and Ottoman domains.
