About

Stambouline is dedicated to exploring the art and architecture of the Ottoman Empire and beyond, looking at the stories behind the buildings and objects that have been left behind. We want to focus especially on the stuff you won't see in many guidebooks--think Sister Wendy meets Anthony Bourdain. Each post introduces a new place or object, and there is always some suggested reading if you want to learn more. We also include the post's real-time location in Google Maps, in the hopes that you feel inspired and want to check out some of these places for yourself. If you have comments or questions, please email stambouline@gmail.com. We are always eager for new submissions.

This blog is part of a consortium of websites dedicated to bringing the history of the Middle East and North Africa to a wide audience. To find out more, you can explore these other blogs and podcasts here

The founder and editor of the blog, Emily Neumeier, is ACLS Postdoctoral Fellow in the Humanities at The Ohio State University.
