Lecture: Nations Against Empires: Nation-State Building in the Balkans

event_title

Join us for a special lecture, hosted by the Center for Hellenic Studies!

The lecture will focus on major transformations in Southeastern Europe from the late eighteenth century to the Balkan Wars (1912–1913) and the First World War (1914–1918), in the context of global changes that led to the demise of the Austro-Hungarian, Russian, and German empires and reconfigured the map of Europe.

The Ottoman Empire, at its height under the reign of Süleyman the Magnificent (1520–1566), extended from the Danube to the Nile. The Balkans formed an important part of this empire for six hundred years, until the nineteenth century when the rise of Balkan nationalisms resulted in the collapse of the mighty empire and in the creation of new states based on the principle of national self-determination. The lecture will focus on major transformations in Southeastern Europe from the late eighteenth century to the Balkan Wars (1912–1913) and the First World War (1914–1918), in the context of global changes that led to the demise of the Austro-Hungarian, Russian, and German empires and reconfigured the map of Europe.
