Ottoman studies

Ottoman studies is an interdisciplinary branch of the humanities that addresses the history, culture, costumes, religion, art, such as literature and music, science, economy, and politics of the Ottoman Empire. It is a sub-category of Oriental studies and Middle Eastern studies, and also Turkish studies.

According to Marc David Baer, Ottoman studies is an "ethically challenged field" because "Armenian Genocide denial is widespread".[1]
