Brittany White is a fellow in the Bridge to the Doctorate program, advised by Chris Gratien. Her work examines the African Diaspora in the Ottoman and post-Ottoman world and seeks the Black experience at the center of larger questions in historiography. This includes questions about race, slavery, migration and displacement, and the subsequent formation of nation-states after the fall of the Ottoman Empire.
Brittany is also interested in public and digital humanities. She is deeply committed to writing history as engaging and accessible literature that can reach audiences outside the academy. She is a member of the Ottoman History Podcast team, where she records interviews with scholars from the field of Ottoman/Turkish Studies.
She enjoys taking photos of Turkish street cats.
