Welcome to the Fifth ENIUGH congress on "Ruptures, Empires and Revolutions"!
Following the successful and rewarding congresses held in Leipzig, Dresden, London, and Paris, the next ENIUGH Congress will take place in Budapest, hosted by the Central European University (Department of History) and Corvinus University (Karl Polanyi Research Centre at the Institute of Sociology and Social Policy), supported by 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 seek to discuss the global context and repercussions of the revolution in particular while debating the role of revolutions in global history in general. We also encourage to explore the relationship between empire and revolution and to challenge still influential narratives, like the supposedly universal trend from “empire to nation” through a comparative and global perspective on empires and imperial societies.
