One paradox of Austrian national identity is that its narrative has become so potent that Austrians encounter difficulties telling histories going back before 1918, the year the First Republic was founded. Can the Austrian Empire be written back into Austrian history?
This Special Issue comprises the results of two workshops: Empire, Socialism, and Jews II: Socialist Women and Alternative Subjectivities in late imperial Austria, held at Duke University in March 2013, and Empire, Socialism, and Jews III: 1848, 1867, 1889—Revolution, Emancipation and Mass Politics, held at the Internationales Forschungszentrum Kulturwissenschaften (IFK) in Vienna, Austria, in May 2015. The first workshop focused on the relationship between feminism, socialism, and Jewish identity in the Dual Monarchy. The second workshop focused on the transformations of the 1848 revolutions, the 1867 emancipation of the Jews, and the founding of the socialist party in 1889. Together, these workshops represent part of an ongoing project to reconceptualize the Austrian Empire’s place in Central European history by focusing on the interaction of imperial institutions and ideals, the socialist movement and Austrian Jewry.
