Deniz T. Kılınçoğlu is an intellectual and cultural historian of the nineteenth century with a particular interest in the Ottoman Empire. He received his PhD in Near Eastern Studies from Princeton University in 2012. Kılınçoğlu’s research has largely focused on the history of economic thought; the intercultural circulation of ideas, and its social, political, and cultural implications; and more specifically, the intellectual and cultural transformation in the 19th-century Ottoman Empire.
At the Lichtenberg-Kolleg, Kılınçoğlu works on a book on nationalism and emotions in the late Ottoman Empire. He also develops a digital history project on 19th-century travelogues about the Middle East.
