Description: This graduate seminar examines different approaches to study of modernity and modernization in the Ottoman Empire from the onset of the Tanzimat reforms in 1839 until after WWI and the empire's demise. By engaging equally the social and spatial dimensions of the major societies, including Istanbul, Damascus, Beirut, Cairo, and Izmir we will explore the various meanings of modernity and modernization as these reflect at the urban architectural scales, in urban life, in localized discourses on the city, through such emerging institutions as the museum, and the context of expanding migration and global works.
