The conference will explore the parallel nature of visions, the interactions between them and their consequences. In concrete terms, individual contributions should focus on the emergence and the impact of scenarios of demise and visions for the future in the major empires of Eastern Europe in the period between 1830 and 1920. Not only the ways in which visions of demise, loss and defeat were articulated should be investigated, but also the extent to which they were connected to or initiated far-reaching projects of reform, which often sought to resolve the whole plethora of existing problems and political crises of system in one ‘clean sweep’.
