The Ottoman Empire sat at the crux between Asia, Africa, and Europe and connected systems of trade, politics, and culture across continents. It also contained diverse worlds within it through the many peoples, languages, and religions its imperial frame encompassed. These worlds of the Ottoman Empire informed the expanding horizons of the early modern period both through its internal dynamics and far-flung interactions.

This presentation will discuss the politics of collecting and display in the late Ottoman context and will focus on different collections that were held and displayed at three royal pavilions in the Topkapi Palace: The Fatih Kiosk, the Privy Chamber, and the Tiled Pavilion. The functions of all three pavilions, originally built by Mehmed II (the Conqueror) in the 15th century, have changed within centuries and they ended up housing various royal collections and treasuries. By the 19th century, these pavilions –and the collections within– were being visited by diverse audiences; and different display techniques were adopted that conveyed multiple narratives of modernity, tradition, heritage, dynastic continuity, and authority.
