Published Volumes

The first volume of the Journal of Austrian-American History, edited by Kristina E. Poznan, appeared in 2017, and included articles on Hungarian migrant marriages in the United States, a study of Austrian and Dustbowl refugees, as they appear in Hollywood cinema, and an assessment of Hip hop, Malcolm X, and Muslim activism in Austria.[3][4][5]

The 2018 volume of the Journal featured a special issue on migration from Central Europe, together with articles on the ties between the industrialist and arts patron Walter Paepcke, the Hungarian artist László Moholy-Nagy, and an emerging Bauhaus sensibility in Chicago, as well as the relevance of the "frontier thesis" of Frederick Jackson Turner to the Habsburg military border, among others.[6]

In its 2019 issue, the Journal presented archival research foregrounding the correspondence of prominent Habsburg-Americans, with articles devoted to John R. Palandech (Ivan Palanda?i?), the well-known immigrant publisher, politician, and entrepreneur in Chicago, and an essay by Walter D. Kamphoefner on language and loyalty among German Americans during World War I.[7][8] Oral histories of American diplomatic personnel stationed in Vienna from 1945-55, recorded by the Association for Diplomatic Studies and Training, are also featured.[9]

The most recent issue includes, among other contributions, an article by Thomas Riegler who investigates Vienna and the British-American film production, The Third Man, as a locus classicus for postwar espionage, as well as an assessment by Günter Bischof of Allied post-World War II occupation and nation-building, and its lessons for the future.[10][11]
