The Lives of Ottoman Children | Nazan Maksudyan



150.     From the Mouths of Babes

Much has been written about shifts in the concept of childhood and the structure of families, particularly for the period following industrialization. However, seldom do the voices and experiences of children find their way into historical narratives. In this podcast, Nazan Maksudyan offers some insights about how to approach the history of children and childhood and discusses the lives of Ottoman children during the empire's last decades.



Nazan Maksudyan is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology at Istanbul Kemerburgaz University. Her work examines the social, cultural, and economic history of children and youth during the late Ottoman period. (see academia.edu)
Chris Gratien is a doctoral candidate at Georgetown University researching the social and environmental history of the Ottoman Empire and the modern Middle East. (see academia.edu)

Common Ground and Imagined Communities | Daniel Pontillo



149.     The Nation as Conversation

The study of discourse already occupies a prominent place within the humanities, but what can the study of a much differently defined discourse in the study of language offer to fields such as history? In this episode, we attempt to bridge the gap between language and cognitive science and the field of history through a comparison of two analogous concepts: the linguistic notion of "common ground" and a sociological understanding of "the imagined community."
