The Socio-Economic History of Anatolia in the Ottoman Period was a three-year project organised by the Skilliter Centre and Vehbi Koç ve Ankara Araştırmaları Merkezi (VEKAM), Koç University. As part of this project, there were three conferences on Disease and Disaster in Ottoman Anatolia, Trade and Production in Ottoman Anatolia, and Social and Cultural Life in Ottoman Anatolia. The first conference, Disease and Disaster in Ottoman Anatolia, was held in Cambridge on 18-19 March 2016 and covered disease and disaster, both man-made and natural, and examined how society reacted to and coped with such disasters, how the state responded and how such events impacted state-society relations. For details see the conference page.
The second and third conferences, Trade and Production in Ottoman Anatolia (for details, see the conference page) and Social and Cultural Life in Ottoman Anatolia, were held in Ankara in Autumn 2017 and Autumn 2018 respectively.
