“New Perspectives on Ottoman Economic History” Program Posted

Ottoman Empire, 1720
The Yale Program in Economic History will sponsor a mini-conference on New Perspectives on Ottoman Economic History to be held at Yale University on November 9-10, 2012. The co-organizers of the conference are Professor Timothy Guinnane, Yale University, Economic Growth Center, and Seven Agir, Middle East Technical University.

The program has now been posted, along with registration information. The conference is open to the public, but registration is required to assist in planning. All papers will be available on the conference website approximately three weeks before the meeting. Authors will not present their paper; instead, they will have ten minutes to summarize their results. Rather than have a formal discussant, discussion will be opened immediately to all participants
