In a series of seminars, leading Turkish professors will discuss unknown facts about life in Ottoman harems. The seminars have been organized in conjunction with the exhibition “House of the Sultan: Topkapı Palace Imperial Harem,” on display at the Has Ahırlar (Sultan’s Stables) section of Istanbul’s Topkapı Palace.

The seminars will be led by Professors Nurhan Atasoy, Gül İrepoğlu, Mehmet Kalpaklı and Deniz Esemenli, and will be held every Tuesday between 4 and 6:30 p.m.

The exhibition showcases 287 works, all from the palace’s collection, consisting of items that belonged to residents of the harem, including both sultans and concubines. The show is the first exhibition of its kind ever held in Turkey, and is divided into four sections, each focusing on one significant aspect of harem life.
