As a consequence of the shifting power relations in the so-called Age of Revolution and Reform, the political landscape of Eastern Europe was changed dramatically.With the expansion of the French, th eAustrian and the Russian Empires at the expense of others (such as Venice and Poland), large imperial border areas werecreated anew or, alternatively, had to be reorganised according to their changing strategic status, while others were on theverge of independence (e. g. Ottoman provinces).

By comparing quite different, yet contiguous transitional areas stretching from the Adriatic to the Black Seas, the conference sets out to inquire into the ways in which government was intellectually and practically performed in situ, including forms of resistance as well as the repercussions at “the centre” of imperial self-understanding.
