Kadric, Sanja

Doctoral Candidate, History
Ohio State University


Sanja Kadric is a doctoral candidate in the History Department at The Ohio State University (B.A. from Seattle University, M.A. from The Ohio State University). She is a specialist in Islamic History whose work focuses primarily on the history of the Ottoman Empire and military and bureaucratic slavery. She studies the Ottoman institution of the dev?irme, a levy of young men trained and educated as elite military and bureaucratic servants. This institution's legacy in the Balkans, as well as other former Ottoman lands, allows her to bridge her work on the sixteenth and seventeenth-century Ottoman Empire with her interests in early modern and modern European, Eastern European and Middle Eastern history. She is particularly interested in race, ethnicity, religion and gender within the scope of empire and nation-building, population politics and immigration. In the OSU History Department, she is affiliated with the Comparative Empires constellation, the Race, Ethnicity and Nation constellation, and the Women's, Gender and Sexuality constellation. Sanja is currently finishing her dissertation and teaching undergraduate history courses at The Ohio State University.
