Aims, contents and method of the course

The lecture covers the history of Southeast Europe from the establishment of the Ottomans as dominant regional power in the 15th century until the first beginnings of national emancipatory movements in the outgoing 18th century. The focus is on central aspects of political, economic and social developments which are examined in comparative perspective and with special consideration of trans-regional entanglements. The aim is a differentiated and thematically well-balanced panorama that takes into account, inter alia, specifics of statehood in the framework of imperial ruling strategies, economic dependencies and social structures between continuity and change. There will also be opportunity to confront essentialist perceptions of the "Balkans" with contemporary research and, finally, to discuss the scope and limits of cultural-geographical concepts of space in historical scholarship.
