Annual Conference of the Austrian Studies Association
The Austrian Studies Association (formerly the Modern Austrian Literature and Culture Association, MALCA) 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.
The Association publishes a quarterly scholarly journal, the Journal of Austrian Studies; the Association holds an annual spring conference, organized around a year’s theme.* Its other activities include organizing scholarly panels for the annual conventions of the Modern Language Association and at other national and international conferences. Current news and resources of interest are included on this website and distributed through its list-serv and on its Facebook page.
Anyone interested in modern Austrian studies, broadly defined, is encouraged to become a member and support the Association’s work.
