Podcast by Ottoman History Podcast. Ottoman History Podcast began in March of 2011 as an experiment aimed at finding an alternative form of academic production that explores new and more accessible media and allows for a collaborative approach. Our recorded interviews and lectures, while still largely academic in tone, provide serious and constructive academic discussion in an accessible and almost human format that is easy on the brain and eyes.

E213 | The urban history of the Ottoman Empire usually deals with subjects pertaining to the imperial capital of Istanbul. But Istanbul was only one of many important urban spaces in the empire. For example, the nearby city of Edirne, which was a significant city throughout the Ottoman period and preceded Istanbul as capital, has received considerably less attention despite its physical and symbolic centrality. In this episode, Amy Singer shares some of her research on the urban, architectural, and socioeconomic history of Edirne across centuries of historical transformation. More at: http://www.ottomanhistorypodcast.com/2015/11/edirne.html Amy Singer is professor of Ottoman history at Tel Aviv University. In addition to the city of Edirne, her research currently focuses on the possibilities of creating a trans-Ottoman digital platform for research cooperation and publication. CREDITS Episode No. 213
