Turkish-Italian War (1911-1912) and Balkan Wars in the Disintegration Process of the Ottoman Empire

16-18 May 2011
Ege University Faculty of Letters


Call for Papers:

As Ege University Faculty of Letters Department of History and Center of Ataturk Studies, with cooperation of the Turkish Historical Society, we are planning to organize the First Annual International Symposium on History on topics relating to the “Turkish-Italian War (1911-1912) and Balkan Wars in the Disintegration Process of the Ottoman Empire”.

It is known that the Turkish-Italian War (1911-1912) and Balkan Wars had a crucial role during the course of dissolution of the Ottoman State. We think it would be instructive to evaluate this process, which is still relevant to the present day, in various aspects in order to develop a mutual future founded on reciprocal understanding and trust. The contribution of such scientific activities in determining a frame of political, cultural and economic relations, which have existed from past to present and is anticipated to continue advancing in the future between Turkey and states and communities in the geography of symposium’s subject matter is obvious.

We will be glad if our collegues participate with their papers to this academic meeting we are planning to organize.
