Re-shaping the Margins of Europe


Faculty organizers:
Tarik Amar, Assistant Professor of History
Christine Philliou, Assistant Professor of History

With the support of a BEI grant, Re-shaping the Margins of Europe convened two workshops and a plenary session, envisioned as the first meetings of an ongoing working group that will link conflicts and ideas in and around Europe from the early modern to the modern periods. The first workshop examined Ottoman legacies in the post-Ottoman world. The second workshop had as its aim to compare the ways concepts of Europe were (re-)shaped in and through the conflicts that brought the Soviet Union into being out of the Russian Empire, and the Republic of Turkey out of the Ottoman Empire, as well as the ways ideas of Europe shaped those transformations. The plenary session, immediately following the second workshop, involved a discussion of the workshop’s themes and means to forge intellectual and practical connections between Columbia’s Global Centers in Istanbul and Paris.
