War Unmakes the State? Austria-Hungary's Internal Wars, 1914-1918
Lecture | September 14 | 5-6:30 p.m. | 201 Moses Hall
John Deak, University of Notre Dame
After decades of state-building success, Austria-Hungary collapsed totally and utterly in 1918. For many years, historians have argued that this ramshackle empire was an anachronism, unfit to live among modern nation states in the twentieth century, and therefore it was destined to fall. But such thinking ignores the dynamics unleashed by the First World War, including the state of exception and military incursions into civilian affairs. Dear will discuss how the Habsburg state was transformed into something new during the First World War.
