Rome, Vienna, Budapest? In one program?!

That's right! The CHID Legacies of Empire program is now open for applications!

The goal of this program is to show how this world of nation states, which we consider as obvious and relatively stable, is a very recent and fragile historical phenomenon. For many centuries, vast empires comprising diverse peoples ruled and determined their lives and their destinies. What is a nation? Is the European Union simply the stitched together scraps of failed empires? Many of the ideas, ideals, ideologies and policies of the Roman, Byzantine, Hapsburg, and Ottoman Empires are still relevant and often essential in order to understand the often contradictory and unresolved issues of today's world.
