The "Long nineteenth century" ended with the First World War and the War ended with a Revolution, in an exact reversal of the way this age opened. In 1789, a Revolution prompted a massive realignment of international power relations through the Napoleonic Wars, while in 1914 the international state system created by the Holy Alliance a century earlier collapsed and a new alternative arose from the destruction of Tsarist absolutism.
The Department of Balkan, Slavic and Oriental Studies, University of Macedonia in collaboration with Association Internationale d'Etudes du Sud-Est Europeen participating in commemoration of the centenary of the outbreak of the Great War and aiming to repeat the successful experience of the first "Balkan Worlds" conference in 2012 is organizing a follow up event entitled “Balkan Worlds II: Balkan Perceptions of War and Revolution”, scheduled for November 27-30, 2014 at the University of Macedonia, Thessaloniki.
The Conference will be dedicated to ways of perceiving the Great Wars and Revolutions which marked the history of Europe and the world by Balkan intellectuals, politicians, writers, activists etc. The Conference Scientific Committee is especially interested in presentations focused on how intellectuals of the major ideological movements of the Enlightenment and Romanticism perceived relationships between war and revolution in the Ottoman Balkans and their connection with the emergence of nation-state building.

The working language of the Conference will be English.
