This conference, which is organized by Prof. Hakan M. Yavuz (University of Utah), Tamara Scheer (Ludwig Boltzmann-Institute for Social Science History), and Prof. Philipp Ther (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.
