Skilliter Centre

The Skilliter Centre for Ottoman Studies


The Skilliter Centre for Ottoman Studies was founded with a generous legacy from Dr Susan Skilliter, who left her extensive library and a substantial benefaction to establish the Centre at Newnham.

It seeks to encourage knowledge and understanding of a major Muslim empire with large European and Mediterranean territories, and to assist scholars from many disciplines in exploring connections between their own work and Ottoman studies. It is the only research centre devoted purely to Ottoman Studies in the UK and Western Europe and has an international profile. The Skilliter Centre has no political affiliations or agenda.
