Visions of the future in Ottoman Europe (15th – 20th century)
22. November 2018 - 24. November 2018
Conference of the study group „Ottoman Europe“ at Ruhr-Universität Bochum from the 22nd to the 24th November
Historians who seek to understand the people of the past have to know their visions of the future – visions that oftentimes differed from the future that those people were confronted with in their actual life.
With the annual conference 2018 we want to apply Lucian Hölscher`s approach ( “Die Entdeckung der Zukunft”) to South-Eastern Europe and thus close an academic void.
We are open for suggestions that – inspired by the concept of “visions of the future” – unlike Hölscher himself also focus on the pre- and the early modern period and their continuation into the 19th and the 20th century.
Please send suggestions (frame of about 2000 to 3000 characters) for presentations of about 30 minutes in German or English until March 30th, 2018.
