Conference: Imperial Afterlives: The End of Empire in Europe, 1878-1923

Thu, 18 Aug - Sat, 20 Aug '22

The First World War witnessed the dramatic collapse of the German, Russian, AustroHungarian and Ottoman Empires, ushering in a new international order that was formalised in the Treaty of Versailles and its associated agreements. The transition from imperial to national states across Europe during this period has long preoccupied historians, and the legacies of empire in those new polities has begun to attract the attention of scholars. This conference will bring together scholars from across the field to consider the ‘afterlife’ of the German, Russian, Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman Empires.

The conference will be held at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge. For more information, or if you would like to participate, please contact the organisers: Anna Ross (University of Warwick): A.Ross.2@warwick.ac.uk Jean-Michel Johnston (University of Cambridge): jmj48@cam.ac.uk
