RRSI2014: MENAlab and the Ottoman History Podcast
Michael Połczyński, Georgetown University
In recent years young Ottomanists from different institutions and with a diverse set of research interests and goals have engaged in a variety of collaborative digital projects ranging from blogs and podcasts to the creation of online databases. Although this has been a largely informal process, it is possible to identify key elements of the “MENAlab” model. My talk will explore the frontiers of digital humanities within the field of Ottoman history and introduce some of the new collaborative projects that are currently underway.
