Fifth ENIUGH congress on « Ruptures, Empires and Revolutions » / Central European University (Department of History) / Corvinus University (Karl Polanyi Research Centre at the Institute of Sociology and Social Policy) / the Hungarian Academy of Sciences’ Research Centre for Humanities.

Under the overall theme “Ruptures, Empires, Revolutions” and on the occasion of the centennial of the Russian Revolution, we will discuss the global context and repercussions of the revolution in particular while debating the role of revolutions in global history in general. Added to that we will explore empires and imperial forms of organisation, especially in view of how they changed and ended, and which legacies they left. Violent transformations of societies, ruptures in world orders, and wars, as well as changing international relations are addressed from transnational and transregional angles.
