Dr. Çıpa is Associate Professor of Ottoman History at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. He is the author of The Making of Selim: Succession, Legitimacy, and Memory in the Early Modern Ottoman World (Bloomington: Indiana University Press, 2017) and co-editor, with Emine Fetvacı, of Writing History at the Ottoman Court: Editing the Past, Fashioning the Future (Bloomington: Indiana University Press, 2013). The primary focus of his work is the history and historiography of the Ottoman Empire, with a specific emphasis on dissident movements and succession struggles. He is also interested in issues related to the socioeconomic history of the Ottoman Empire within the larger framework of military-agrarian societies of the late Middle Ages and the early modern era. His book project at ANAMED, “Popular Uprisings in Pre-Modern Ottoman Lands,” investigates multiple waves of popular rebellions that tested the foundations of the Ottoman state over the course of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.
