Imperial Cities: The Tsarist Empire, the Habsburg Empire and the Ottoman Empire in Comparison
26. April 2018 - 27. April 2018
International conference at the German Historical Institute (DHI), Moscow, April 26-27, 2018
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.
