Bio in English :
 

Ali Yaycioglu is a historian of the Ottoman Empire at the intersection of Early-Modern Europe and the Muslim World. His book, Partners of the Empire: Crisis of the Ottoman Order in the Age of Revolutions (Stanford University Press, 2016) is an attempt to rethink the Ottoman experience within the global context of the revolutionary age in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. The book examines institutional transformations, political crises and settlements for reform in the Ottoman Empire. His current book project in progress, which is entitled Order of Volatility: Wealth, Power and Death in the Ottoman Empire,analyzes how insecurity of property rights and risks of political lives shaped the Ottoman order as well as attitudes of people towards life and death from the fifteenth to the mid-nineteenth centuries. Ali Yaycioglu is also working on an edited volume with Cemal Kafadar, entitled Ottoman Topologies: Production of Space in an Early-Modern Empire, on spatiality and spatial imaginations in the Ottoman World. 

Dr. Yaycioglu was born and raised in Ankara, Turkey. He studied International Relations at the Middle East Technical University, Ottoman History at Bilkent University,  and Islamic legal history at McGill University. After completing Ph.D. in History and Middle Eastern Studies at Harvard, Dr. Yaycioglu carried out a post-doctoral study in Hellenic Studies at Princeton. He joined Stanford in 2011.
