Food as a Window into Daily Life in Fourteenth-Century Central Anatolia

Nicolas Trépanier holds a BA with joint honors in Middle Eastern studies and political science and an MA in Islamic studies, both from McGill University. Currently a PhD candidate in history and Middle Eastern studies, he is completing a dissertation titled “Food as a Window into Daily Life in Fourteenth-Century Central Anatolia,” in which he studies the various aspects of food in human life—from agriculture as a professional activity to the meal as a point of social interaction—to re-create the “texture of daily life” and, ultimately, to get a glimpse into the worldviews of late medieval Anatolia.

This information is accurate as of the fellowship year indicated for each fellow.
