DCA supports doctoral program "Austrian Studies" (2020-2024)

The DCA research group gladly announces the membership in the interdisciplinary doctoral program (DP) "Austrian Studies"


PhD students of various disciplines like geography, history, literature, philosophy, art history, musicology, architecture and law share their knowledge and competences in the field of "Austrian Studies". Meetings (currently online), cooperation of lecturers and doctoral students, and the organisation of events/courses provide a broad common ground for interdisciplinary collaboration. DP "Austrian Studies"



The doctoral program Austrian Studies released a publication that is based on the lecture series which took place in the summer term of 2022 and focused on migration and how it influenced past and present Austrian society, economy and the (cultural) landscape. For the publication, several contributions of the lecture series were supplemented with the article of another postgraduate and a report of a panel discussion on perspectives on borders and borders as perspective, which was part of the workshop titled “Teilungen Europas – Ideen, Politik, Praktiken” that took place on 6th May 2022 in Toblach/Dobbiaco (IT).

It was the aim of both the lecture and the publication to explore various topics in connection to migration through the disciplines represented in the doctoral program, with a variety of methods and theories. Together with Elias Knapp and Vanessa Maria Carlone, Leonie Hasenauer contributed to the publication as an editor, and therefore as a co-author of the introduction; with Martina Schmidinger, they composed a report on the panel discussion, and Leonie Hasenauer authored an article on the focus of her dissertation that is included in the publication.


At the end of the summer term 2022, the interdisciplinary lecture series was concluded. Both organisers and speakers look back on thoroughly positive feedback.
