(Post) Ottoman Migrants and the Origins of the Modern World

From 1870 onwards, millions of Ottomans scattered throughout the world as refugees. This project explores the contribution these peoples had on the subsequent global transformations caused by their migrations. Considering that these refugees joined millions of others uprooted by "modernity," more research is needed to understand how they became part of the global economy and their possible role in shaping the politics of labor exploitation.
