Book Presentation: ""The End of Ottoman Rule in Bosnia. Conflicting Agencies and Imperial Appropriations"
Hannes Grandits (HU Berlin) & Jovo Miladinovic (Universität Konstanz)
We cordially invite you to the presentation of Hannes Grandits's new book "The End of Ottoman Rule in Bosnia" with BGSMCS alumnus Jovo Miladinović on Monday, July 4 2022 at 4 pm at the BGSMCS.
This book examines the end of four centuries of Ottoman rule in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the 1870s. It focuses on the volatile period that began in the summer of 1875, when violent unrest broke out in the eastern Herzegovinian region borering Montenegro, causing a refugee catastrophe. Grandits traces the following political and social developments up to the summer and autumn of 1878, when a Habsburg army took control of the Bosnian Vilayet − after months of fighting against massive resistance from the local population throughout the province.
