Uluisik, Secil

PhD Candidate, History
University of Arizona


I am an advanced PhD Candidate with a Major in Middle East History and a minor in Comparative History at the University of Arizona. Currently, I am based in Vienna, Austria as a research fellow at the Austrian Academy of Sciences for the project titled "Between Sultan and Emperor: Imperial Legacies, Religion, and Governance in Ottoman- Habsburg Borderlands, 1800- 1900", and writing my dissertation. Between 2013-2015, I conducted multi-country archival research for my dissertation in the Ottoman archives of Istanbul (Turkey), Sofia (Bulgaria), and Vienna (Austria). My ongoing dissertation examines politics of taxation and inter-imperial networks of non- Muslim Ottoman provincial elites during the 19th century. I hold a BA degree in Economics from Bogazici University, Turkey, and an MA degree in Comparative Studies in History and Societies department from Koç University, Turkey. I have extensively taught World History I & II, and History of Muslim Societies I & II at the University of Arizona. I also taught a summer seminar on Turkey- EU Relations in European Forum Alpbach in Belgrade in 2016. For more info, see: https://history.arizona.edu/user/secil-uluisik
