Cross-Cultural Networks of Power and Patronage: The Sokolović Family in the Ottoman Empire

Posted By Karen-edis Barzman, Friday, May 13, 2016

Papers are invited from across the disciplines addressing the networks through which members of the Christian Orthodox Sokolović family, originating in what became the Ottoman pashaluk of Bosnia, negotiated power and exercised patronage (from political to pious) through various institutional structures at the center and periphery of Ottoman imperial rule. Papers may focus on those who rose to the highest administrative ranks in Istanbul (Grand Viziers Sokollu Mehmed Pasha, Sokolluzade Lala Mehmed Pasha) or in the provinces (Sokollu Ferhad Pasha, Beylerbey of Bosnia), those well placed in the hierarchy of the Orthodox Church (Serbian Patriarchs Makarije, Antonije, Gerasim, Savatije Sokolović), or members of the extended Sokolović family who played lesser roles in the public or private affairs of the family.   

Please submit your paper proposal by 1 June to Karen-edis Barzman, discipline representative for Art History (, subject line: Sokolović panel. Proposals must include the following:
