Chris Gratien - ”The Unsettled Plain”

This week, Dr. Philip Gooding (IOWC, McGill) interviews Prof. Chris Gratien (UVA) about his highly-awarded new book, The Unsettled Plain: An Environmental History of the Late Ottoman Frontier (Stanford UP, 2022). They talk about trends and methods in environmental history, the specific histories of Çukurova that the book explores, and the late Ottoman frontier as a frontier in turn of the vast Indian Ocean World.

Prof. Gratien is Associate Professor in the Department of History at the University of History. The Unsettled Plain is his first monograph, building from his 2015 PhD Georgetown University doctoral thesis. He also co-founded the Ottoman History Podcast in 2011, where he remains a producer.
