Becoming Ottomans

Sephardi Jews and Imperial Citizenship in the Modern Era

Julia Phillips Cohen

  • First book to tell the story of Jewish political integration into a modern Islamic empire
  • Shows that discourses and practices of imperial citizenship arose in the Ottoman Empire earlier than previously assumed
  • Demonstrates that Ottomanism extended beyond a small number of Muslim elites
  • Examines imperial citizenship as a series of political performances rather than a fixed legal identity
