Working Papers


The Center for Austrian Studies serves scholars who study the politics, society, economy, and culture of modern Austria and of Habsburg Central Europe. It encourages comparative studies involving Austria or the Habsburg lands and other European states. The working paper series seeks to stimulate discussion in the field and to provide a vehicle for circulating work in progress. It is open to all papers prior to final publication, but gives priority to papers by affiliates of the Center or by scholars who have given seminars or attended conferences at the Center.
