Fırat Yaşa is a faculty member in the Department of History at Düzce University in Turkey. He has a Ph.D. in Ottoman History from the University of Sakarya (2017) with a dissertation on the lives, ideas, and expectations of urban and village people, their attitudes towards law, and their roles in the social and economic life in the seventeenth century by writing the microhistory of Bahçesaray between the years 1650 and 1675. His disciplinary interest areas include asymmetrical social dependency, slaving practices, slavery laws, captives, discourses about social dependency, and manumission in the early modern Ottoman Empire and the Crimean Khanate (1500-1700). For the past nine years, he has been studying the lives of East European slaves in sixteenth and seventeenth-century Ottoman and Crimean societies.

Do you want to become a BCDSS fellow, too? 

The Heinz Heinen Kolleg – Center for Advanced Study at the Bonn Center for Dependency and Slavery Studies (BCDSS) is calling for applications for ten fellowships for the academic year 2022/2023. The center brings together excellent international scholars whose research focuses on various forms of strong asymmetrical dependency and slavery in all historical periods before the 20th century, and all cultural contexts.
