We are pleased to invite you to a lecture by William H. Holt entitled “The Balkan Reconquista and Turkey’s Forgotten Refugee Crisis” that will be held on 22 November 2019 between 14.00-16.00 hours at the AVİM Conference Hall.
William H. Holt holds a master’s degree from the University of Utah Middle East Studies Program. He specializes on the Turkish and Muslim refugees from the Balkans during the late Ottoman Empire. He is the author of the “The Balkan Reconquista and Turkey's Forgotten Refugee Crisis” (University of Utah Press, 2019).
In this lecture based on his book, Mr. Holt will tell the story of thousands of Muslims who were massacred, raped, and forced to flee from Bulgaria to Turkey during the Russo-Ottoman War of 1877–1878. Focusing on this tragedy, which has largely been neglected in modern historiography of the Balkans, Mr. Holt will provide unprecedented detail on the plight of the Muslim refugees in their flight from Bulgaria and resettlement in Anatolia.
The lecture will be in English. There will be no translation service.
