Morgan S. Tufan is a PhD candidate at in the Department of History at Stanford University. His dissertation, entitled "Bordering the Kurds: Sovereignty and Autonomy in the Sixteenth-Century Ottoman and Safavid Empires," studies the politics of allegiance among the Kurdish princes in the Ottoman-Safavid borderlands. Along with researching early modern administrative practices of the region, Morgan examines hitherto understudied Kurdish chronicles to recuperate indigenous contestations to imperial governance. He is also interested in the trajectory of the Mongol legacy in Western Asia as well as the fate of Ottoman imperialism in the Indian Ocean. Being fluent in several languages of the region, Morgan translates chronicles and administrative documents from the time period and has recently received the Walter G. Andrews Ottoman Turkish Translation Award for his efforts.
