History Talk: Forging Ottoman History


Join us for an informative and entertaining talk by Prof. Rudi Lindner.

Saturday, October 7 at 3 PM – 5 PM
TACAM
28847 Beck Rd, Wixom, Michigan 48393

We are delighted that U-M History department emeritus Prof. Rudi Paul Lindner has accepted our invitation to give a talk on the field of his expertise at TACAM on Saturday October 7th. The title of the talk is “Forging Ottoman History.” He says “There are two meanings to the verb forge, and I intend to discuss both the formation of Ottoman history and certain aspects of its “invention” by those who looked back on the early days.”

Prof. Lindner has also spent several years in Turkey back in 1970s studying Ottoman history, and still remembers some Turkish verbs. We believe this will be an enlightening seminar for the ones who are interested in history.

This is a free event for the members, otherwise $5.00 donations are suggested.
There will be tea and snacks service!

Hope to see you there.
