A workshop to explore changing understandings of ‘politics’ in Europe, the Ottoman and Arab worlds and South Asia, from the sixteenth through the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The workshop will be concerned with mapping patterns of word use, and considering the function of a set of related words in both rhetorical and practical contexts, with particular attention to how meaning changed through interaction and translation across languages.
