Professor of History Betül Başaran received a short-term Virtual Scholarly Research Fellowship at the Folger Shakespeare Library for the academic year 2023-24, in support of ​her project, “Cross-Cultural Intimacy and Mixed Marriages in the Ottoman Empire.”​ The award was made from a​ ​competitive pool of international candidates​ and will support the preparation of ​Başaran​'s article for publication​ in an edited volume of the proceedings of the Balance of Justice in the Ottoman Empire conference that she attended in October 2022 in Istanbul. The initial research for this project was previously supported by the Folger Shakespeare Library during the 2018-19 academic year during Başaran​'s last sabbatical.

Folger Fellowships are awarded by a committee of interdisciplinary, highly-respected scholars external to the Folger, who make recommendations on the basis of each project’s scope, promise, and high quality. They judged Başaran’s project to have exceptional merit.
