|The Ottoman Empire - Part 1|
|Session||12 weeks 9/10|
This is the first of two courses covering the history of the Ottoman Empire. We will watch videos by The Great Courses and I will provide optional supplemental reading material. The course this fall will cover the period up to about the 17th Century. Part 2, to follow in the spring, will conclude with the collapse of the Ottoman Empire after WWI and its replacement by the Turkish Republic under Ataturk.
