The Collapse of Ottoman and Austria-Hungarian Empires: Patterns and Legacies

The Collapse of Ottoman and Austria-Hungarian Empires: Patterns and Legacies

This conference, which is organized by the University of Utah, the Ludwig Boltzmann-Institute for Social Science History, and the Institute for East European History (University of Vienna) will examine the social and political causes of the collapse of Ottoman and Austria-Hungarian Empires and examine the immediate and long-term implications of the processes of imperial dissolution through a set of theoretically guided and empirically based questions. The goal of the conference is to bring together experts from different disciplines, exchange theoretical and empirical insights, and have an academic platform for fruitful discussions on the end of empires and birth of nation-states, with scholarly implications for other imperial and national settings.
While the Vienna meeting will provide a stimulating venue for senior and junior scholars to present the most recent and cutting-edge research on the themes of the conference, the papers presented and discussed will be published by the University of Utah as an edited volume following a strict peer-review process.
