Title

1821 and the Ottoman age of revolutions: Magnates and their regional orders

Date

6 November 2021

Abstract

This paper enquires into the extent to which 1821 was the result of broader Ottoman processes and phenomena. By shifting attention to the Ottoman age of revolutions, it scrutinises the economic, social and intellectual legacy of regional magnates in the Balkans, Anatolia and the Arab provinces, connecting them to the outbreak of the Greek Revolution and its subsequent development. Not simply regional warlords, these magnates helped forge new fiscal and power networks while they reshaped political representation and forms of communication. During this period the empire experienced radical transformations and reconfigurations similar to other polities of the time. The paper will discuss the intertwined nature of local, regional, and imperial dimensions of a global process before, during, and after 1821.
