22-23 Oct 21, Conference on Re-examining Empires from the Margins
In collaboration with the ‘Nordic Colonialism and the Global’ project, Bernhard Schär (Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow at the Kolleg) and Mikko Toivanen (Osk. Huttunen Fellow) have hosted an international workshop that brought together scholars working at the forefront of new research into the imperial entanglements of European spaces not conventionally thought of as major imperial powers (e.g. the Nordic countries and parts of Central and Eastern Europe). The purpose of the event was to provide an opportunity to take stock and learn from each other, but also to identify gaps in the emerging literature and push the field into fruitful new directions transcending individual national contexts.
