Research Title: Famine in a Time of Uncertainty: Food Aid and Sectarianism in Anatolia, 1839–1893
Mr. Ghazarian is a PhD candidate in Columbia University’s Department of Middle Eastern, South Asian, and African Studies (MESAAS), where he works on Ottoman social and economic history. His research focuses on the intersections of natural disaster, humanitarianism, and sectarianism in central and eastern Anatolia between 1839 and 1893.
