Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The Guided Reading discusses various aspects of the exercise of modern political power in the Habsburg Monarchy on the basis of selected sources and secondary literature. The course offers a broad geographic overview, taking account of the regional variety of the Habsburg realm from the Austrian hereditary lands to the lands of the Hungarian Crown, from the Austrian Littoral to Bosnia-Herzegovina. The thematic units comprise the wars and peace orders from the Napoleonic Wars to the end of World War I., the domestic and external representation of monarchic power and the soft power of cultural resources as well as processes of political, social and economic integration and fragmentation.
