Environmental history is a growing field of study for scholars of the Ottoman Empire and nation-states in the post-Ottoman territories, especially Turkey. Over the past decade, environmental history has emerged as one of the most significant sub-fields of Ottoman-Turkish history. After successful meetings in Hamburg (2017) and Ankara (2019), we are happy to announce that the 3rd Network for the Study of Environmental History of Turkey (NEHT) Workshop will take place in Vienna in 2021.


The workshop, organised by the Professor of Turkish Studies at the University of Vienna, will bring together scholars of Ottoman and post-Ottoman environmental history, whose research interests converge around the concept of the Anthropocene. Under the overarching theme The Anthropocene: From Empire to Nation-States, the 3rd NEHT workshop will discuss the ways of integrating the concept of the Anthropocene into the field of Ottoman/post-Ottoman environmental history. It will open a space for analysing the role of human activities in transforming the Ottoman/post-Ottoman landscapes in the age of the Anthropocene.


The major aim of the 3rd NEHT workshop is to provide an international and interdisciplinary forum; and therefore, it is open to a wide range of disciplines, fields, approaches, subjects, and methodologies.
