Dear Sir or Madam,
We would like to introduce you to the new UNIVIE: WINTER SCHOOL FOR
CULTURAL HISTORICAL STUDIES of the Sommerhochschule of the University of
UNIVIE: WINTER SCHOOL FOR CULTURAL HISTORICAL STUDIES
"THE DISCOVERY OF MODERNITY - VIENNA AROUND 1900"
FEBRUARY 2 - 17, 2018
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 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 input 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, Art Nouveau,
Schönberg Center) and to different museums (the Museum for Applied Arts
and Schönbrunn Palace) 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 favors 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.
Having seen the academic program of your university, we believe that the
courses offered at the UNIVIE: WINTER SCHOOL FOR CULTURAL HISTORICAL
STUDIES would complement your departments’ course offerings perfectly.
Given the intercultural and interdisciplinary aspect of the
International Summer 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
