Art and Heritage in Central Europe

Call for Papers: “Women’s Agency in Schubert’s Vienna” (Vienna, 3–5 November 2022)

Art and Heritage in Central Europe

The Habsburg Vormaerz era (ca. 1815-1848) is a fascinating period of transition between the ancien régime and bourgeois modernity, a time of intense negotiation of gender and class identities in a multi-religious and multilingual Monarchy. In this specific environment, women’s agency remains sorely understudied.

The Schubert Research Center invites contributions that recover women’s scope for action and creativity: what activities did culturally interested, professionally or socially active women pursue during this time? What challenges did they face? Apart from studies of specific individuals, they would particularly welcome interdisciplinary papers that explore the overarching structures and dynamics of the time.

Applications should include a short CV and an abstract of ca. 300 words. These materials should be sent to schubert@oeaw.ac.at no later than 22 May 2022.
The Schubert Research Center will cover travel expenses and accommodation. The conference language is English.
