DFG-Priority Programme Transottomanica
Transottomanica is a priority programme (Schwerpunktprogramm) funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). In it 15 single research projects as well as a number of associated projects that are located at 13 universities and research institutions in Germany collaborate. In its first phase, the programme will run for three years from 2017-2020.
The programme explores “transottoman” ties and communication practices which emerged as a consequence of mobility between the Ottoman Empire, Russia, Poland-Lithuania and Persia from the 16th to the early 20th century.
