Biography

Pınar Emiralioğlu completed her PhD at the University of Chicago in 2006. Her first book Geographical Knowledge and Imperial Culture in the Early Modern Ottoman Empire (Ashgate, 2014) explores the reasons for the flurry of geographical works in the Ottoman Empire in the sixteenth century. Currently, she is working on her second book project which investigates the close relationship between geographical knowledge and imperial politics in the Ottoman Empire during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Among her articles are “Islam and empire,” in Encyclopedia of Empire, edited by John MacKenzie (Hoboken, New Jersey: Wiley­-Blackwell, 2016); “Relocating the Center of the Universe: China and the Ottoman Imperial Project in the Sixteenth Century,” Journal of Ottoman Studies XXXIX (2012): 161–187; “Cartography and the Ottoman Imperial Project in the Sixteenth Century,” in Imperial Geographies in Byzantine and Ottoman Space, edited by Sahar Bazzaz, Dimiter Angelov and Yota Batsaki (Cambridge, Massachusetts: Center for Hellenic Studies, Harvard University Press, 2013), 69–91; and “Cartography and Geographical Consciousness in the Ottoman Empire (1453-1730),” European Cartography and the Ottoman World, edited by Ian Manners (Chicago: Oriental Institute Museum of the University of Chicago, 2007). Pınar teaches undergraduate and graduate classes on World History, History of the Middle East, and the Ottoman Empire. She is a member of the Executive Committee of the Forum on European Expansion and Global Interaction and also served as a member of fellowship committee for American Research Institute in Turkey in 2015–2016.
