Personal profile

Research Interests

Professor Yosmaoğlu is a historian of the late Ottoman Empire and early Republican Turkey.  The primary question motivating her research is why and how people commit or condone violence in various forms. Her first book, Blood Ties: Religion, Violence, and the Politics of Nationhood in Ottoman Macedonia, traced the emergence of nationhood among Christian Orthodox peasants in Macedonia during the final decades of Ottoman rule in the region. She is currently working on another book project, Regimes of Violence: War, Militarism, and the Making of the Turkish Nation, 1878-1939, that reconsiders the origins of Turkish nationhood through a study of demographic change and inter-communal relations in Thrace.
