Mohammed Hadi Hosainy

M.A. in History, Sabanci University, Istanbul



Born and grown up in Iran and lived in Afghanistan, I came to Turkey for my undergrad education in 1998. I studied International Relations at METU, Ankara, after which I moved to Istanbul to study for a Master's degree in Conflict Analysis and Resolution. There, I developed interest in Ottoman ways of alternative dispute resolution. I studied for a master's degree in Ottoman history and I wrote my dissertation on early-modern amicable settlement. Since 2008, I have been pursuing my Ph.D. degree at the University of Texas at Austin. As a Ph.D. candidate, I am working on my dissertation, which is about the intergenerational transfer of property in early-modern Istanbul. I am interested in how gender, law, state, and social norms influenced the process of the devolution of property from a generation to another.
