Series on MENAdoc

This series is based on many smaller sources that have not been considered by the scientific community because of their relatively uncommon language or because they are privately owned.

These include diaries, memoirs, letters and other personal documents of the inhabitants of the Ottoman capital Istanbul from the second half of the 19th century to the early years of the Republic of Turkey.

The series was established in 2015 as part of the research project “Self Testimonies as Sources on the History of the Late Ottoman Empire“. We can provide these publications as part of our cooperation with the Orient-Institut Istanbul of the Max Weber Foundation.
