My book, Healing the Nation: Prisoners of War, Medicine and Nationalism in Turkey, 1914-1939, was published by the Edinburgh University Press in 2013. I am in the planning stages of a new book project, which will be a cultural and social history of the Ottomans in the First World War. Mostly, I aim to explore self-perceptions and emotional sensibilities, or a history of subjectivities, of the soldiers who fought in the war. During 2013-2014, I will be on leave at the Institute for Advanced Study.
