Cemberlitas Hamami in Istanbul

The Biographical Memoir of a Turkish Bath

Nina Macaraig

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Edinburgh Studies on the Ottoman Empire

  • Weaves together Ottoman and modern Turkish architectural, cultural, social, economic and other strands of history in examining an important element of everyday life
  • Applies a biographical approach that presents a new paradigm for the discussion of architectural monuments, not only in an Ottoman context, but across time and space
  • Reconstructs the story of the hamam using architectural surveys, archival documents, media analysis and participant observation
  • Takes an experimental approach in terms of the organisation and presentation of Ottoman architectural history
