Call for papers
Published on: June 29, 2022

In October 2023, 750 years will have passed since the election and coronation of Rudolf of Habsburg as King of the Romans. This event can be seen as the starting point for the unforeseen rise of a noble family that in many ways determined the course of European and world history in the following six centuries.

On this occasion, the Milko Kos Historical Institute and the France Stele Institute of Art History are preparing an international conference. The aim of the conference is to examine and reassess the early period of Habsburg rule in Eastern Europe, focusing on the Slovenian lands and the Eastern Alps. Proposed topics include the rise of the House of Habsburg and the process of consolidating power in the first centuries after their rule.

All interested parties are requested to send the titles and abstracts of proposed papers to the address Abstracts should not exceed 250 words. This call is open until 30 November 2022. The selected contributions will be announced on 31 January 2023.
