Yesterday, along with Senem Aydın-Düzgit, I had the opportunity to take part in an online lecture on the history of Euro–Ottoman relations, and the importance of that encounter for the development of the modern states-system and capitalism. This was part of an excellent lecture series on “Decolonising Europe in International Politics”, convened by Beste İşleyen and Tasniem Anwar at the University of Amsterdam’s Centre for European Studies.
As many attendees asked for full references of the works I mentioned throughout my talk, I thought it’d be a good idea to compile a brief bibliography. The following list is limited to the works that I specifically highlighted during the discussion:
- Bhambra, Gurminder K. (2011) “Talking among Themselves? Weberian and Marxist Historical Sociologies as Dialogues without ‘Others’.” Millennium: Journal of International Studies 39(3): 667–81.
- Çapan, Zeynep Gülşah (2020) “Beyond Visible Entanglements: Connected Histories of the International.” International Studies Review 22(2): 289–306.
- Nişancıoğlu, Kerem (2014) “The Ottoman Origins of Capitalism: Uneven and Combined Development and Eurocentrism.” Review of International Studies 40(2): 325–47.
- Nişancıoğlu, Kerem (2019) “Racial Sovereignty.” European Journal of International Relations.
- Subrahmanyam, Sanjay (1997) “Connected Histories: Notes Towards a Reconfiguration of Early Modern Eurasia.” Modern Asian Studies 31(3): 735–62.
