Everyday Empire: A New History of Habsburg Central Europe, 1780-1948

I propose to write a new history of the Habsburg Monarchy and its successor states from the late eighteenth century through the mid twentieth century. I seek to write this history from a perspective that combines local histories with an analysis of the common political, administrative, and cultural institutions that united the diverse regions of the Monarchy, and that influenced them even after the Monarchy's demise in 1918. My project focuses on relationships between local daily-life practices, regional political cultures, and shared government structures of rule and administration. This narrative framework offers scholars a credible alternative to the fragmented nation-based accounts that have traditionally dominated the historiography of Central and Eastern Europe.
