L'Accent de la province : Une histoire des réformes ottomanes à Chypre au XIXe siècle

Abstract : This study is about archives (Ottoman and consular) from the Ottoman province of Cyprus during the period of the “Tanzīmāt”, i.e. the reforms implemented or attempted within the domains of the Sultan during the 19th century. Approaching from the vantage point of a province the variety of relationships established between a singular locality and a global empire, one has to study specific writing and reading processes — in a nutshell: a provincial accent. Particular relevance is therefore imparted to questions of formulation, as related to issues of formalization. Yet, since provincial singularity can never be obliterated by the rule of a standard administration, various improvisations left their imprints upon archives, and are also to be accounted for. This dissertation is therefore an attempt to propose, challenging the narratives composed in imperial capitals, a provincial history of the Ottoman world.
