The Cambridge New Habsburg Studies Network is pleased to announce the launch of its website. The network aims to promote Habsburg studies in Cambridge by exploring new approaches to the history and cultures of Central and Eastern Europe, including the new methodologies of gender studies and social history. It will use the new website as a platform to advertise upcoming events and research initiatives. If you are interested in the network you can also sign up to it on the website:
The network’s principal objectives include highlighting the need for further comparative research in the history of Central and East Central Europe in fields such as the history of material culture and consumption, in religious studies, in legal history, in literary studies, as well as in translation studies. In the field of the history of material culture and consumption, for example, the group sees the opportunity to draw together research on the Central and East Central European areas, and thus to redress the conventional bias of such work towards Northwest Europe and Italy.
