each semester

Examination of the historic and cultural space of “Inner-Austria” (≈ Styria)  (temporal categorization and local mapping by means of guided tours in museums or by the phenomenon of the so-called “lieux de memoire”), intensification of knowledge about the historic developments from Early Modern Times to present days.

Like Tyrol also Styria is an Austrian federal land with a distinctive regional identity. This results partly from its role as a Habsburg residence in the Early Modern period, partly from its assertive landed Estates and the role of the province in the time of industrialization. We will deal with the early medieval history in Pürgg and Admont, with the spread of Reformation (Strechau), Graz and its development from a Habsburg residence to “Pensionopolis” in the 19th c. and its start into the time of industrialization.

(Guided) tours in the field, presentations of the course instructors, local experts and preparation of historical material about the visited places. Willingness to discuss!

active participation during the excursion, preparation of thematic units and if so final essay
