The Turkic Cultures Student Association cordially invites you to a talk by Dr. Linda Darling titled "Who Were the Timar Holders? An Investigation of Ottoman Military/Land Records." The Timar system was used by the Ottoman Empire to distribute land in return for military obligations and taxes.
Darling is currently a visiting research fellow at the Institute for Historical Studies. She is an associate professor of history at the University of Arizona and her recent research focuses on the empire and elites in the Ottoman 17th century.
