At the core of the work of the research unit ‘History of the Habsburg Monarchy’ is the question of the cohesive forces that enabled this complex of lands to exist over centuries.
This research unit deals with the development and application of digital methods in historical scholarship.
The Balkan region and Austria have been intricately intertwined for centuries. Today, Vienna remains an important cultural, social and economic reference point for the societies of the region.
Our work mainly comprises research projects employing various, principally media-historical, methodologies in order to examine the issue of visual culture in the representation of the House of Habsburg.
