Dear List members, The Third Ottoman Military History Workshop will be held at Istanbul Sehir University, Bati Kampus, Sinema Salonu on 5-6 October 2012. Attached is the program of the workshop. The program can be reached at http://sehir.edu.tr/Pages/HaberlerDuyurular/Etkinlikler.aspx?Event=20 http://sehir.edu.tr/SiteAssets/Lists/SehirEtkinlikTakvimi/EditForm/a4_brosur.BASKI.pdf The first workshop of this series was organized at the Bilkent University on 21-23 Mart 2008 with a view to bring in a broader perspective to Ottoman military history. It was held with the participation of sixteen young scholars and graduate students. Some of the presentations were published in Toplumsal Tarih 198 (Haziran 2010) under the general title of “Yeni Askeri Tarihçilik” (New Military Hİstory). Our goal is to incorporate Ottoman military history into the general narrative of Ottoman history through underlining many interactions between war, society, economy and politics. The second workshop of the series was held in İstanbul University under the title, “II. Osmanlı Askeri Tarihi Semineri: Perspektifler, Problemler, Projeler” on 10-11 May 2010. Attended by around thirteen researchers and graduate students, it was a great success in terms of raising interest in war-and-society studies among various publishing houses in Turkey. As a matter of fact, Timaş Publications was one of the sponsors of this workshop. This present one will be the third workshop of the series. The novelty of this workshop lies in the fact that military topography, experimental studies and modelling will be treated in separate panels. Besides, it brings together academic and non-academic researchers for the first time with the full financial support of İstanbul Şehir University . We are planning to publish the presentations with the support of Tarih Vakfı, which is generously sponsoring the event this time. We strongly believe that past six years turned this idea of demilitarization of Ottoman military history into a full-fledged project that strives to (a) broaden the scope of Ottoman military history (b) incorporate Ottoman military history into world military history in terms of theories, methodologies and approaches (c) encourage multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary studies. Finally, we would like to thank our "hocas" for their unwavering support in our past and present endeavour: Oktay Özel, Gabor Agoston, Özer Ergenç, Hakan Kırımlı, Feridun Emecen, İdris Bostan, Mahir Aydın, Virginia H. Aksan, Fikret Yılmaz, Mehmet İnbaşı, Mehmet Yaşar Ertaş, Haluk Oral.
