INDS 180 The Colorful Sunset of the Habsburg Empire: An Apocalyptic Waltz

World War I ended in the disintegration of the Habsburg monarchy that for centuries had united peoples of widely differing races and languages. This course focuses on the cultural upheaval in the twilight years of the empire (c. 1870-1919) by indicating how these apocalyptic years found expression in the culture, art, and intellectual work of the most famous luminaries of the period.
