The Otto Spies Memorial Lecture (OSML) series honors the memory of Professor Otto Spies (1901–1981), the director of the former Orientalisches Seminar at the University of Bonn. The series aims to provide a forum for shorter contributions by established scholars of Ottoman Studies. Its scope will allow all aspects of Ottoman history, literature, language, and art history. The contributions are supposed to discuss new findings in research and provide innovative interpretations of primary sources. To this end, the OSML was established by the editors in 2015.
