Members of the Research Group REVENANT (ERC Consolidator Grant #101002908), based at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Rijeka, stayed in Moise Palace from Monday, May 8 to Wednesday, May 10, 2023. Led by the Principal Investigator, Jeremy F. Walton, the group presented and discussed their interesting research projects, which cover a vast range of topics from the bygone Habsburg, Ottoman, and Romanov Empires. Sarah Czerny and Vjeran Pavlaković also visited their presentations from the Faculty’s Cultural Studies Department.

REVENANT examines the collective memories and legacies that have afforded powerful afterlives to the Habsburg, Ottoman, and Romanov Empires, through a multidisciplinary, comparative perspective, and a threefold heuristic of persons, places and things. More information about the project, research team, and events can be found at:
