Gendering the (post-)Ottoman world, Clio. WGH 48 (Fall 2018)



How does gender challenge the history of the transition from the Ottoman Empire to the nation-states of South-East Europe and Turkey? Specialists in Turkish, Balkan and Ottoman studies respond to this question in this issue of Clio. FGH. Beginning with Istanbul, the contributors open perspectives on such settings as Smyrna, Athens, Tirana, Sofia, and Sarajevo. Readers discover women in harems, feminist movements, a range of women writers and artists, the itineraries of midwives and nurses that bring to life a kaleidoscope of languages, religions and societies. This exploration also reveals common features that connect regions across geographic borders as well as historical continuities that question chronological divisions. The deliberate distancing from a nationalist perspective on this troubled past brings out the complex relationship between changes in political regimes and the transformation of gender regimes.
