Abstract

This article discusses cultural and social encounters between Germans and Ottomans in Istanbul between 1870-1918. It considers the growing presence of Germans in late Ottoman Istanbul through examining contemporary publications, literary impressions, material culture, and gender relationship. The thesis is that though German political and social presence in the Ottoman capital became powerful during the reign of Abdülhamid II and the Young Turk era, German culture was never able to replace the French prestige culture cherished so much by Ottoman intellectuals.
