In May 2022, the QhoD project initiated the QhoD Book Talk Series with the first book presentation by Georg B. Michels from the Department of History at the University of California, Riverside.

QhoD is a two dimensional research project that, on the one hand, charts new historical research areas concerning all conceivable aspects of Habsburg-Ottoman diplomatic contacts and, on the other, innovatively applies digital humanities methods to that history. Accordingly, the QhoD Book Talk Series is designed as a venue mainly for scholars who have recently published monographs dealing with early modern and modern Habsburg-Ottoman contacts (broadly defined).

However, we also plan the series to be a platform for scholars and projects using digital humanities methods. In the end, the QhoD Book Talk Series aim to create a productive and constructive communication among scholars based on the most recent developments in the project’s research areas.

The project will be presented at the Austrian Academy of Sciences. For registration, please contact ulrike.rack@oeaw.ac.at, stating whether you would like to participate in person or via Zoom. The Zoom link will be circulated in time.
