During the 1970s the Austrian Ministry of Science and Research supported
the founding of the „Centre for Austrian Studies“ at the University of
Minnesota in Minneapolis and the Austrian chair at Stanford University in
California. Nowadays there are six institutions of this kind operational,
besides the U.S.A. also in Canada, Hungary and Israel. Their tasks are to
promote Austrian and Central European studies among professors and
students of their host nation and to provide Austrian students the
possibility to conduct research in a foreign country and to get in touch
with the respective national scientific communities. This anthology
contains not only a description of the Institution’s activities in the
academic year 2008/2009, but also the working papers of ten of their
present PhD students. Their research, which is for the most part connected
to the History of East Central Europe, covers a period from the
19 th century to the present.
