Abstract:
"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."
