Humanitarianism and Refugees at the End of Empire, 1848-1918

A book-length study on refugees and humanitarianism in the Ottoman Empire from 1848-1918.

My book manuscript, “The Politics of Caring: Humanitarianism and Refugees at the End of Empire, 1848-1918,” examines the evolution of humanitarian discourse and action in international politics and civil society over the course of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Using the local and international responses to the human catastrophe of the Near Eastern Crisis of 1875-1878 as a centerpiece for investigating the deep roots of modern humanitarianism and refugee aid and protection, “The Politics of Caring” finds the roots of modern humanitarianism in nineteenth century Europe and the Middle East. With the help of an NEH summer stipend, I intend to complete Chapter One of the manuscript and begin revisions to the introduction.
