We would like to inform you about the univie: winter school for Cultural Historical Studies 2022 of the Sommerhochschule of the University of Vienna.


univie: winter school for Cultural Historical Studies – „The Discovery of Modernity – Vienna Around 1900“


February 4 – 18, 2022


The univie: winter school for Cultural Historical Studies takes place in Vienna, where traces of the outstanding culture of the late 19th and the beginning of the 20th century are still visible. The two-week program combines first class academic courses with an extensive social and cultural program. Vienna’s rich cultural heritage, especially the museums, will lead to a thorough understanding of the input of the fin-de-siècle on the modernization of Europe.


This unique program consists of high-level lectures in the morning and guided excursions to the city of Vienna and to different museums in the afternoon. Outside the framework of classes, Vienna offers plenty of opportunities to explore additional museums and sights.


The academic course environment encourages intercultural and social exchange and favors mutual understanding within the international student population. Participants thus broaden their horizon, meet colleagues from different fields of study, make friends for life and build connections for their future professional careers. Given the intercultural and interdisciplinary aspect of the program our course offerings are, without question, of interest for students from all fields of study.
