In February 2019 the University of Vienna, Austria organizes the next univie:

univie: winter school 2019 for Cultural Historical Studies
"The Discovery of Modernity - Vienna Around 1900"
http://shs.univie.ac.at/winterschool

The univie: winter school for Cultural Historical Studies takes place in Vienna, the capital of the former Habsburg Monarchy (and Austria of today) where traces of the outstanding culture of the late 19th and the beginning of the 20th century are still visible.

The two-week program takes place from February 1 to 15, 2019 and combines first-class academic courses with an extensive social and cultural program. Vienna’s rich cultural heritage, especially the museums, will lead to a thorough understanding of the impact of the fin-de-siècle on the modernization of Europe.

This unique program consists of high level lectures in the morning and guided excursions to the city of Vienna (e.g. Ringstraße) and to different museums (the Museum for Applied Arts, the Schönberg Center, and the Leopold Museum) in the afternoon. Outside the framework of classes Vienna offers plenty of opportunities to explore additional museums and sights such as the St. Stephan’s Cathedral, the Imperial Palace, and the Treasury.

The academic course environment encourages intercultural and social exchange and favours mutual understanding within the international student population. Participants thus broaden their horizon, meet colleagues from different fields of study, make friends for life and build connections for their future professional careers. Given the intercultural and interdisciplinary aspect of the International Winter Program our course offerings are, without question, of interest for students from all fields of study, but certainly of special interest for students who study one of the following fields: History, Cultural Studies, Art, Literature, Psychology, and Political Science.

Attached you find the current folder and the application form of the winter school 2019.
