Urban history research has recently experienced increasing interest in “imperial” questions. One expression that is used over and over again is the “imperial city”.
While this term has so far primarily been applied to the European metropolises of the western colonial empires, this conference aims to analyze the phenomenon of the imperial city in the context of the continental empires of Eastern Europe, such as the Habsburg Monarchy, the Ottoman Empire and the Russian Empire.
The Berlin University is hosting a conference on ‘From Oriens Christianus to the Islamic Near East – Theological, Historical and Cultural Cross-pollination in the Eastern Mediterranean of Late Antiquity‘ from 7-8 December 2017. Please find more information here.
