Subject outline

This Humanities subject combines summer-semester foreign travel with the study of Ottoman Turkish history. Combining prior study with going to Turkey makes History come alive. In this subject offered in association with Australians Studying Abroad, students choose between scores of topics exploring the cultural, architectural and political history of the Ottomans from the Fourteenth Century to the First World War. At Marmara-region historic sites in Turkey -- including Gallipoli and the Ottoman capitals, Bursa, Edirne and Istanbul -- students examine seven key periods of Ottoman history: the early Ottomans, the conquest of Constantinople, the era of S├╝leyman the Magnificent, the eighteenth-century 'Tulip Age', nineteenth-century Europeanization and reform, and the Gallipoli campaign of 1915 and its tragic aftermaths. Note: availability of this unit (to Australian students) may be subject to advice drawn from Commonwealth travel safety notices.
