Carolina Seminar • Legal Improvisation in the Ottoman-European Borderlands (1820s-1840s)
April 7 @ 6:30 pm
Emily Greble is Associate Professor of History at Vanderbilt University. Her research interests include Islam in Europe, the transition from empire to nation-state, civil conflict, and local responses to socialism. Greble’s first book, Sarajevo, 1941-1945: Muslims, Christians, and Jews in Hitler’s Europe (Cornell, 2011) examines the persistence of institutions and networks in the city of Sarajevo under Nazi occupation during the Second World War. Her second book, Muslims and the Making of Modern Europe (Oxford, 2021) upends the polemical doxa that Muslims were outsiders or foreigners to Europe, arguing that they are central to understanding the intricate processes of European nation-building and the nature of European equality, secularism, and law in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
