The Viennese café was a key site of urban modernity around 1900. In the rapidly growing city it functioned simultaneously as home and workplace, affording opportunities for both leisure and intellectual exchange. This volume explores the nature and function of the coffeehouse in the social, cultural, and political world of fin-de-siècle Vienna. Just as the café served as a creative meeting place within the city, so this volume initiates conversations between different disciplines focusing on Vienna at the beginning of the twentieth century. Contributions are drawn from the fields of social and cultural history, literary studies, Jewish studies and art, and architectural and design history. A fresh perspective is also provided by a selection of comparative articles exploring coffeehouse culture elsewhere in Eastern Europe.

Focused on the German-speaking parts of the former Habsburg Empire, and on present-day Austria in particular, this book offers a series of highly innovative analyses of the interplay of nationalism’s discursive and institutional facets. Here, Christian Karner develops a distinctive perspective on Austrian nationalism over the longue durée, tracing nationalistic ways of thinking and mobilizing from the late eighteenth century to the present. Through close analyses of key texts representing diverse settings and historical episodes, this book traces the connections, continuities and ruptures that have characterized the varieties of Austrian nationalism.

Charting the period that extends from the 1860s to the 1940s, this volume offers fresh perspectives on Aestheticism and Modernism. By acknowledging that both movements had a passion for the ‘new’, it goes beyond the alleged divide between Modernism and its predecessors. Rather than reading the modernist credo, ‘Make it New!’, as a desire to break away from the past, the authors of this book suggest reading it as a continuation and a reappropriation of the spirit of the ‘New’ that characterizes Aestheticism. Basing their arguments on recent reassessments of Aestheticism and Modernism and their articulation, contributors take up the challenge of interrogating the connections, continuities, and intersections between the two movements, thus revealing the working processes of cultural and aesthetic change so as to reassess the value of the new for each. Attending to well-known writers such as Waugh, Woolf, Richardson, Eliot, Pound, Ford, Symons, Wilde, and Hopkins, as well as to hitherto neglected figures such as Lucas Malet, L.S. Gibbon, Leonard Woolf, or George Egerton, they revise assumptions about Aestheticism and Modernism and their very definitions. This collection brings together international scholars specializing in Aestheticism or Modernism who push their analyses beyond their strict period of expertise and take both movements into account through exciting approaches that borrow from aesthetics, philosophy, or economics. The volume proposes a corrective to the traditional narratives of the history of Aestheticism and Modernism, revitalizing definitions of these movements and revealing new directions in aestheticist and modernist studies.

Dieser Band beschäauml;ftigt sich mit der jüuuml;dischen Identität der öouml;sterreichischen Dichter und Denker Arthur Schnitzler, Stefan Zweig, Richard Beer-Hofmann, Karl Kraus und Theodor Herzl im Kulturkontext und in der Kulturkrise des österreichischen Fin de Sièegrave;cle. Sie schöpften alle mehr oder weniger bewusst aus einem reichen jüdischen Erbe, von dem sie sich entweder absetzten (Kraus, Zweig) oder dem sie sich wieder zuwandten (Beer-Hofmann, Herzl). Die dynamischen Spannungen, welche sich aus den Wechselwirkungen zwischen dem Absorbieren österreichischer Kultur einerseits und dem Geprägtsein von jahrhundertelanger jüdischer Tradition und deren Werten andererseits ergeben, finden ihren Ausdruck in unterschiedlichen Reaktionen der paradigmatisch für alle europäischen Juden stehenden hier untersuchten österreichisch-jüdischen Persönlichkeiten auf die Kultur und Kulturkrise des Fin de Siècle.

This book is a study of ethnic conflict and coexistence in the central European city of Bratislava between 1867 and 1914. The study examines the changing relations between the German, Magyar and Slovak ethnic groups in the city against the background of modernization, industrialization, and urbanization. The author argues that the boundaries between the city's ethnic groups were indistinct in this period and that ethnic affiliations and cultural identities fluctuated in response to prevailing power relations. This argument challenges the conventional division of people into neat groups as if identities were clear-cut and could be tidily defined and divided.

Red Vienna and the Golden Age of Psychology 1918 1938

A few years after Austria's disastrous defeat in the First World War, Vienna, a city hardly known for intellectual fervor or serious discourse, suddenly emerged as a mecca for psychology. This is the first book to present that history within the context of the political and social events of the time. Sigmund Freud, Alfred Adler, Otto Rank, Karl Buhler, Erik Erikson, and Helene Deutsch were among the hundreds of famous psychologists who lived and established training centers in Vienna. Momentous historical events forced the emigration of the majority of Vienna's leading psychologists, who, largely Socialist and Jewish, emigrated when Austria was "annexed" by Germany, abruptly ending the Golden Age.
