Dear H-Net Community,
Welcome to HABSBURG, a member of the H-Net Humanities & Social Sciences Online family of networks sponsored by the Michigan State University. HABSBURG is a daily Internet discussion forum dedicated to the history and culture of the Habsburg Monarchy, its successor states, and their peoples from 1500 to the present. The primary purpose for HABSBURG is to enable scholars in history and related disciplines to communicate current research and research interests, stimulate discussion of approaches, methods and tools of analysis and circulate information on new articles, books, jobs/grants and resources. All languages are welcome.
Founded in October 1991, HABSBURG was the first Internet discussion group dedicated to an historical theme. We are affiliated with the Center for Austrian Studies, the Society for Austrian and Habsburg History, the Czechoslovak Studies Association, and the Hungarian Studies Association. We welcome any new members and encourage participation in HABSBURG activities. If you have any question or wish to become more involved, please get in touch with the editorial team.
Please join the Center for Austrian Studies on September 21, 2020, at 12 PM CT for the 36th Annual Kann Memorial Lecture. This year's lecture will be delivered by Tara Zahra, Homer J.
