On the weekend of May 13-15, the History Department hosted the 12th annual Great Lakes Ottomanist Workshop (GLOW). About 40 scholars arrived from the US and Canada to participate in a workshop on Ottoman
history, languages, literature and cultures. This gathering has steadily grown to become one of the finest forums for a discussion of scholarship on the Ottoman Empire. A total of 6 panels were held at
Founders College followed by a visit to the Agha Khan Museum. The workshop was sponsored by The Departments of History and Humanities, as well as the LAPS Professional Studies Events and Outreach Fund, The Faculty of Graduate Studies, the Office of the Vice-President Academic and Provost, and the Office of the Vice-President Research and Innovation. Next year's GLOW will be held at the University of
Michigan, Ann Arbor.
