The ‘Köprülü Period’ in Ottoman History (1656-1710): New Sources, New Approaches


Third International Suleymaniye Symposium (in collaboration with Ibn Haldun University)

The ‘Köprülü Period’ in Ottoman History (1656-1710): New Sources, New Approaches / Osmanlı Tarihinde 'Köprülü Dönemi' (1656-1710): Yeni Kaynaklar, Yeni Yaklaşımlar

The Third International Suleymaniye Symposium will revolve around the theme "The ‘Köprülü Period’ in Ottoman History (1656-1710): New Sources, New Approaches." The Köprülü family has profoundly shaped Ottoman and Central European history in the second half of the seventeenth and the early eighteenth centuries. The concept of household and the patronage of the family members have been traditionally at the center of studies concerning the Köprülü era. However, many new sources, recent articles, books, dissertations, and projects have opened new frontiers while also expanding on the existing assumptions and approaches about the period. The symposium aims to bring together a large number of international experts from the fields of Ottoman and European history and introduce new perspectives on the role the Köprülü family played in Ottoman and European history.
