Turkey Research Center presents a new series titled "Talks on Cities and Neighborhood" that will give you the opportunity to discuss the historical and contemporary issues of the urban planning, spatial history, and environment through related books, dissertations and articles. In our next meeting in March, we are going to host M. Erdem Kabadayı*. He will present his discussion on Industrialization and Urban Development (1850-2000): Sources and New Methods for Historical Research**.

“UrbanOccupationsOETR project aims to measure and map dynamics of industrialization, economic development and urbanisation from the late Ottoman Empire to today’s Turkey (1850-2000). The project will adopt an inter-disciplinary approach with a comparative perspective and will focus on the dynamics of industrialisation, urbanisation and their accompanying changes in occupational structures and residential and migrational patterns. This project can be seen as an attempt to bring Ottoman/Turkish history into the newly emerging field of digital humanities. In this respect, it will use advanced techniques of spatial data and multiple correspondence analysis in conjuncture to answer long debated research questions and to formulate and work on new ones by taking an unprecedented step forward towards establishing a digital research infrastructure for the social and economic history of the Ottoman Empire and the Republic of Turkey. In addition, this project will re-define industrialisation in its connection with urbanisation from a spatiotemporal analytical perspective. The end goal is to understand the regional and temporal differentiations of economic development.”***
