Lecture

History Conference Keynote Address

When: Fri., April 5, 5-7 p.m. 2019

As part of the HSU History Department’s annual Undergraduate History Conference, keynote speaker Dr. Mostafa Minawi will discuss “International Law and Colonialism in Africa at the Turn of the 20th Century: The Ottoman Case” in Founders Hall, Room 232. This talk reflects on the implications of “juridical colonialism”–the legalistic justification of European colonization of non-European lands—on the Ottoman Empire’s own imperial project. Tracing the involvement of the Ottoman Empire in multi-lateral agreements which affirmed or assumed Ottoman sovereignty, Minawi will show how European Powers increasingly marginalized Ottoman legal rights through extra-legal methods.
