Paschalis Kitromilidis (University of Athens) "From Empires to Nations: Transitions in the Historical Experience of Southeastern Europe"

This lecture attempts to address the historiographical question of the emergence of nations in Southeastern Europe by considering in a long-term perspective two sets of historical transitions: (a) the transition from Medieval Christian empires to the monocratic rule of the Ottoman empire in the region in the 15th century and (b) the transition from foreign rule to nation-states in the early nineteenth century.
