The Journal of Ottoman Studies has dedicated two issues to Tom Goodrich, History professor emeritus, in honor of his significant contributions to research in this field.

In the introduction to the double issue, “Other Places: Ottomans Traveling, Seeing, Writing, Drawing the World—Essays in honor of Thomas D. Goodrich,” the editors note, “We are pleased to offer this volume 39 of the Journal of Ottoman Studies, and the coming volume 40, to Prof. Thomas D. Goodrich, who taught at Indiana University of Pennsylvania for many years, and has been a pioneer of Ottoman Studies in the US.

“In particular, the study of Ottoman maps, travelogues, and cosmographical works is simply unimaginable without the groundbreaking works of Prof. Goodrich, culminating in his monograph The Ottoman Turks and the New World: A Study of Tarih-i Hind-i Garbi and Sixteenth-Century Ottoman Americana (1990).”
