The Recharging Austro-American Relations Conference asks scholars, together with commercial, cultural, and political leaders to open a discussion whose subject is the profound long-term relationship between Austria and the United States. Organized around four panels and two round tables, with topics ranging from restitution, economic history, culture, and high technology to Habsburg historiography and an assessment of the current predicament, the conference is both an ambitious, two-day review of Austro-American legacies, and a rare opportunity to consider globally-situated Austria and the United States in a bilateral context. “Recharging Austro-American Relations” is devoted to revisiting and learning from the past; it is an occasion to highlight new research; and it is an invitation to discuss what should come next. Jointly hosted by the Botstiber Institute for Austrian-American Studies (BIAAS) & the Diplomatische Akademie Wienin cooperation with the Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation.
Where: Diplomatische Akademie Wien | Favoritenstrasse 15a, 1040 Vienna, Austria
When: June 9-10 with panels and lectures from 9:30am until 6:00pm
