Introducing the Association

The Austrian Studies Association continues traditions started in 1961, as the only North American association devoted to scholarship on all aspects of Austrian, Austro-Hungarian, and Habsburg territory cultural life and history from the eighteenth century until today. (more . . . )

The association's journal, the Journal of Austrian Studies, under the editorship of Todd Herzog (U of Cincinnati) and Hilary Hope Herzog (U of Kentucky), is the successor to Modern Austrian Literature. (more . . . )
