Call for contributions Vienna: 1900: Brussels – until 31 December 2014
Between the 1880’s and the 1920’s, an international network of transcultural exchanges led to accelerated innovations in multiple cultural fields in many parts of Europe. Strong emphasis has been made by researchers and exhibitors on the relations between Vienna and Paris, which was considered the capital of culture, attracting craftsmen, artists, musicians, and writers from all over Europe.
We are looking for book contributions in literature, theatre, architecture, design, music, opera, psychoanalysis, politics, popular culture, visual arts, and all cultural fields acknowledging and analysing the interdisciplinary and transcultural networks of Brussels and Vienna around 1900.
In cooperation with the Wirth Institute for Austrian and Central European Studies at the University of Alberta, we are planning to publish a volume and to discuss the contributions in a workshop in Edmonton (September 10-12, 2015). We will be considering circulating all accepted contributions to participants, beforehand.
The abstracts (300 words and short biography) must be sent by December 31, 2014
