Acquisition of skills in scientific research methods (concerning scientific literature as well as primary sources); awareness of methodological approaches; training for participation in ongoing scientific discourse and in didactically suitable forms of presenting results of research, consolidation of historical knowledge about the mentioned period of time and its specific problems.

In 2017 we´ll celebrate the 300th anniversary of Maria Theresia´s birth. Due to the Pragmatische Sanktion she was her father´s legitimate successor to rule the Habsburg hereditary lands. But there were other women, too who could act politically in a formal or informal way in early modern times. Later there were women who campaigned for women´s rights alone or organized in associations. So, questions dealing with women, power and politics can be put from early modern times to the second women´s movement in Austria.

brief introduction to the subject; reading and analyzing scientific essays and historical sources together in class; working in groups.


 

The students are expected to be present regularly and to take an active part in the course; they have to do smaller tasks alone or in groups; oral presentations of their own topic, including an handout; moderation of discussion; paper (15 pp.).

 basic literature will be announced in the course; research of further specific literature is part of the students´ tasks.
