The Great Lakes Ottoman Workshop was launched in 2005 as a more intimate and intensive supplement to the Middle East Studies Association meeting. It encourages exchange among scholars of the history, art, architecture, and folklore of the Ottoman Empire from the Great Lakes region and beyond. Emphasis is on intensive discussion of pre-circulated papers. Since its inaugural meeting at Northwestern University in March 2005, GLOW has met every spring (after initially meeting twice in 2005) at a major Midwestern institution. Past hosts have been (in order) Northwestern University, DePaul University, University of Toronto, University of Michigan, and University of Notre Dame. Given Ohio State's strength in Ottoman studies, we expect a rich and rewarding program in 2009.
