Symposium on Ottoman Jewish Culture

Multiple Speakers
Tuesday, February 13, 2024
9:30-11:30 AM
East/West Conference Rooms Rackham Graduate School (Horace H.) Map
The "decline" of the Ottoman empire at the end of the nineteenth century, constantly reexamined by historians of the period, needs to be addressed in the cultural realm as well. How does this historical concept relate to the Jewish sphere in the empire? The conference on Ottoman Jewish Culture will bring together scholars working on art, music, culture, and literature. By creating an intersection of these fields, the conference endeavors to widen the scope of each and to inquire into the possible links between their respective creative areas. In so doing, the conference will explore the nature of the "decline" hypothesis on cultural creativity, especially among Jews.
