Students will learn about motives and challenges of people who migrated to, from and within (old) Austria over time, based on mainly case study-oriented lectures. Students discuss their influence on art, economy, politics, language, law, media, landscape, etc. along spatio-temporal processes and reflect on the concepts covered in the lecture in the course of a final exam. 

If not before, with the so-called "refugee crisis" in 2015, migration also reached Austria, the middle of Europe. In contrast, it is often forgotten that migrations to, from and within "Austria" had already played a decisive role in the history of today's Austria long before that year.

Accordingly, this lecture series does not capture migration as a simple moment in time, but breaks it down as a spatio-temporal process in which not only the "coming" or "going" but also the "staying" must be taken into account. For migrants, regardless of their motives, a complex field of tension opens up between identity(ies) and integration. On the other hand, these challenges also result in a multitude of influences, which have had a lasting impact on the cultural landscape of Austria - far away from the national borders we are familiar with today.

 

This course is organized by the doctoral program "Austrian Studies". Its primary goal is to approach the concept of "Austria" beyond conventional spatial and historical norms. Lectures from the fields of history, German studies, art history, legal history, musicology, and geography will provide insights into the main research areas of the doctoral program and will be rounded off by individual guest lectures and a supporting program.
