Ayse Baltacioglu-Brammer is currently a PhD candidate at the Ohio State University under the direction of Professor Jane Hathaway. She is researching Safavid conversion efforts in the sixteenth century Ottoman Anatolia and the Sunni-Shi'ite conflict. More specifically, her work focusses on different forms of religious propaganda disseminated by the Safavid religious and political leaders in different Anatolian towns, as well as the drastically varying policies of the Ottoman central authority, from financial support for the order to execution of its followers. She holds a BA in History from Koc University, Istanbul, Turkey.
