Professor Christine Philliou wins 2018 Frederick Burkhardt Residential Fellowship

Christine M. Philliou, Associate Professor of History and member of the CMES Faculty Advisory Committee, has won the 2018 Frederick Burkhardt Residential Fellowship, an award offered by the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) in support of recently tenured faculty pursuing scholarship at an important stage of their careers.

Professor Philliou will use the fellowship to finish research on a book, The Many Deaths of the Ottoman Empire, 1800-2017. She is the author of Biography of an Empire: Governing Ottomans in an Age of Revolution (2010), which examines changes in Ottoman governance before Tanzimat reforms in the mid-19th century, employing the vantage point of an Orthodox Christian elite that was structurally excluded from the Ottoman state but managed to be intimately involved in its day-to-day governance.
