Ozan Ozavci at the Harriman Institute of Columbia University
Ozan Ozavci has been invited by the Harriman Institute of Columbia University to present a paper at the workshop “Reform and Revolution: Discourses of Modernity in Late Imperial Russia and Beyond” which will be held at Columbia University, New York, on 7 April 2017. The workshop has been designed to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the Russian Revolution. The workshop aims at elaborating on alternative perspectives on exploring the advent of Russian modernity as it resonated with contemporary discourses of reform, progress, revolution, and state- and nation-building. In this event, Ozavci’s paper, provisionally titled, ‘Empires, Security and Ideology: A Comparative Analysis of Civil Strives in Mount Lebanon (1860) and the Caucasus (1905-6)’, will pertain to the troubled relationship between empire-building and vernacular politics and how it triggered civil strives in the late Ottoman and Russian empires.
