PhD Project 

«The Shaping of a Public Sphere: International Networks and Translations in the Public Sphere in Ottoman Istanbul, 1880-1914.»

The project explores the role of translations in periodicals in late Ottoman Istanbul. I am interested in how French texts were translated, read, understood and included in the public debate.
