New Data Story: Entangled Dependencies: The Case of the Runaway Domestic Worker Emine in Late Ottoman Istanbul (1910)
The WORCK publication platform documents the ongoing working and discussion process as well as collaborative research results and publications of our Working Groups.
The platform enables mutual exchange, collaboration and comparison within and beyond the scientific network of WORCK – on the level of empirical tradition (texts, images, monuments), statistical material and geodata as well as on the level of analytical categories and hermeneutic interpretation.
In our most recent Data Story, Müge Telci Özbek explores a case file concerning a live-in domestic worker in her early twenties from the late Ottoman police archives, dating from 1910.
She reconstructs the woman’s life course and analyses the mechanisms of coercion shaping the labour relation.
