If there are other interested parties, I would like to join up to make a panel for the MESA conference (19-22 November 2005, Washington, D.C.) on the social history of Jews in the Ottoman Empire. If people are working in

related areas (e.g. literature, religious life, etc.), maybe we can do a group of panels.  The proposal deadline is 15 February.
