Ottoman History Podcast began life in 2011 to provide an alternative forum for discussions of the Ottoman Empire and the making of the modern Middle East. Now, with more than 500 episodes produced, it provides a great resource for professional historians, folks working in foreign policy, or anyone interested in learning more about this region's people, cultures, and history. Episodes feature contributions from and discussions with dozens of scholars from fields such as history, art history, Middle Eastern studies, literature, media studies, and more. Each episode page includes links to listen, a short synopsis, suggestions for further listening, related images, and a select bibliography. The podcast has also produced special series, which can be found in the menu on the left side of the page (which may appear as a hamburger icon on smaller screens): the series "The Making of the Islamic World," which is intended as a university-level introduction to Medieval and Early Modern Muslim history; and "Deporting Ottoman Americans," an investigative series exploring efforts by the U.S. government in the 1930s to deport people to a country that no longer existed. Turkish speakers can also find Turkish-language episodes on the page linked above. Listeners can stay connected with the podcast on Twitter (@OttomanHistory).
