Heath Lowry (Princeton) will be giving a talk ("Hasluck Revisited: The Fate of Muslim 'Sacred Spaces' in Today's Greece") in connection with his new book (it looks quite nice, photos by our Stephen Lewis) at Sabanci University this Monday (May 12), 2-3:30PM (more...). Later this week, and also in Istanbul, Gunhan Borekci (fellow at the RCAC) will give a talk entitled ”Sultan Ahmed I and His Imperial Mosque Complex in Istanbul: An Interpretation” as part of the mini-symposium "Imperial Patronage from Byzantine to Ottoman Times" (Friday, May 16, 4PM- at the "Koc Institute").
