Faire le droit dans l’espace ottoman, 1800-1914

Collège de France, salle Lévi Strauss  -  52 rue Cardinal Lemoine  -  75005 Paris.
Cet atelier de 2 jours réunira des historiens, anthropologues et linguistes, qui étudient la production du droit dans l’espace ottoman. L’objectif de l’atelier est de cerner le phénomène juridique dans une perspective multidisciplinaire et au-delà des dimensions normative et descriptive des lois et législations.
L’atelier est proposé dans le cadre du projet intitulé « Matières à transfaire. Espaces-temps d’une globalisation (post-)ottomane », financé par l’Agence nationale de la recherche (ANR-12-GLOB-003), sous la coordination scientifique de Marc Aymes (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, CETOBAC, Paris).
