Habsburg Empire 1804-1918(new)

The Habsburg Empire 1804-1918 (new)

THCC Wednesdays 1015-1215 fortnightly from 16th Jan

Convener: Michael Austin

Please note a change of venue from previous 'German' history courses. The Habsburg Empire was a multi-ethnic and multi-religious entity that had strong political, administrative, social and economic impact on territories that include or are part of, for example, today’s Austria, Hungary, Czech Republic, Poland and Slovenia.
The Empire, which had lasted nearly 400 years, ultimately and spectacularly collapsed as a result of military defeat, factionism, nationalism and a lack of will to govern.
With your help we will bring to life this period in history by looking at a rich panoply of interesting and varied characters such as Emperor Franz Joseph, his ill-fated heirs presumptive, Franz Ferdinand and Crown Prince Rudolf, Klemens von Metternich, numerous writers, musicians, artists and, of course, The Good Soldier Svejk.

Members interested in making presentations or leading a group of people please contact the convener. A list of source material will be circulated before the course starts.
