Mostafa Minawi,  Associate Professor of History and the Director of the Ottoman & Turkish Studies Initiative

History cames alive for Professor Minawi in his travels this past summer. He states: "Regardless of whether this narrative is based in historical reality or not, living perception of the past is fundamental to our work as historians. The history of the region is not some abstracted imperial diplomatic game to the local people. It’s alive to them. You cannot possibly write about a place without having been there: Archival work is not enough."
