Summary
An attempt to reveal, recover and reconsider the roles, positions, and actions of Ottoman women, this volume reconsiders the negotiations, alliances, and agency of women in asserting themselves in the public domain in late- and post-Ottoman cities. Drawing on diverse theoretical backgrounds and a variety of source materials, from court records to memoirs to interviews, the contributors to the volume reconstruct the lives of these women within the urban sphere. With a fairly wide geographical span, from Aleppo to Sofia, from Jeddah to Istanbul, the chapters offer a wide panorama of the Ottoman urban geography, with a specific concern for gender roles. Nazan Maksudyan is Assistant Professor of History at the Sociology Department of Istanbul Kemerburgaz University and has held Wissenschaftskolleg and Alexander von Humboldt postdoc positions in Berlin at Zentrum Moderner Orient.--
