Sabiha Göloğlu, PhD

Postdoctoral Fellow, Project "CAHIM"

Sabiha Göloğlu received her Ph.D. in Archaeology and History of Art in 2018 from Koç University in Istanbul, Turkey. Her dissertation focuses on eighteenth- and nineteenth-century representations of the Islamic pilgrimage and visitation sites in the Ottoman Empire, bringing together a broad array of images that have never been systematically and comparatively examined before, except in catalogues and articles. She investigates the textual and visual contents of representations of Mecca, Medina, and Jerusalem, analyzes the various visual modes utilized to depict the holy sites, and traces the production, circulation, and use of images as well as the principles governing their visual arrangement and architectural placement. She has two forthcoming articles which explore the content and use of images of the three holy cities in late Ottoman prayer books. She holds a BA of Architecture and MA of Architectural History from the Middle East Technical University in Ankara, Turkey.
