THE PERCEPTION OF WOMAN IN OTTOMAN EMPIRE IN FOREIGN TRAVELOGUES BETWEEN 16TH AND 19TH CENTURIES

Abstract

Author(s): M羹zeyyen ALTUNBAY

Travelogues, which cannot be regarded only as travel writings, are significant works since they are the resources of information about a society's culture beyond being just travel observations. From 16th century to 19th century, there had been a large number of travellers coming to the Ottoman Empire to know and promote Turkish people better by describing them and telling about the country. These travellers handled many issues from politics to cultural life, from military organization to education, from art to craft in their works. One of the most important topics in travelogues is “women”. The topic of women had been discussed under four main headings as Turkish-Muslim women, palace women, concubines and odalisques and non-Muslim women. This study was conducted in order to reveal the perspectives of European people towards the women having lived in Ottoman Empire and being discussed in foreign travelogues between 16th and 19th centuries.
