The symposium’s main theme is Istanbul as a center of sea trading. Papers which evaluate the position of Istanbul, one of the most important ports of the Mediterranean and the capital of the Ottoman Empire, from fields such as sociology, law, archeology, finance and history, will enable the fruitful exchange of information and the procurement of academic conclusions with the guidance and aid of an interdisciplinary perspective.
