Reform Movements and Ideas in the Mediterranean and Eurasia in the Late-Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries
In our series of seminars on “Imperial Legacies along Former Silk Routes in Eurasia and the Indian Ocean”, we will devote the next meeting to a discussion of intellectual agitation spreading in and between the two disintegrating empires of Eurasia in the late 19th and early 20th centuries – The Ottoman Empire and Tsarist Russia.
Our two presenters, Edgar Melgar from Princeton University and Zaur Gasimov from the German Orient-Institut Istanbul, will give us briefings of their respective research work on cross-regional interaction and knowledge transfer.
