About Austria in Transit
The international workshop ‘Austria in Transit: Displacement and the Nation State’ was
held at King’s College London from Thursday 31 August -
Saturday 2 September 2017. The workshop examined cultural responses to issues of transit and the place of the nation state in an era of mass international displacement. Its contributions focused on responses to the current refugee crisis, as well as those which offer a historical or comparative perspective on questions of human displacement and mass migration in the Austrian context. Selected papers will
be published in the twenty-sixth issue of the journal Austrian Studies. Austrian Studies is a peer-reviewed yearbook published in English under the auspices of the Modern Humanities Research Association.
