The Ottoman Empire: relationships with the Hispanic world and the views of Spanish and Latin American travellers

Lecture by Necati Kutlu

Arequipa 2017, 

The Ottoman Empire covered an immense territory from Central Europe to the Arabian Peninsula, from the Caucasus to North Africa, for almost seven centuries. We will see how the Ottoman Empire became interested in the Americas just after the arrival of Columbus, and hear about social, economic and official relations between the Empire and Latin America, including the experiences of important Latin American travellers to imperial Turkey. With Necati Kutlu (Turkey), director of the Centre for Latin American Studies at Ankara University.
