- "I intend to utilize the intellectual output of Albanian and Turkish figures
throughout this period to demonstrate the manner in which this process, and its various
contingencies, affected their worldviews. Particularly, I rely on works from Pashko Vasa,
Faïk Konitza, Sami Frashëri (Şemseddin Sami), Yusuf Akçura, and Ismail Kemal to
elucidate this process of transformation. I argue that these intellectual works provide
crucial insight as to the manner in which Albanians interpreted the events that occurred
between 1878 and 1913. Additionally, I claim that these intellectual sources embody a
resolution of the meta-historical transformations that occurred during this time, the
proliferation of nationalism throughout the Balkans and the Empire’s effort to
“modernize,” and the contingencies that directly effected the Albanian population."
