Vienna Program 2014 Info Session

Learn more about Prof. Stuart's Summer Abroad Program. Vienna, one of Europe's great imperial capitals, is our classroom. A gateway to Eastern Europe, Vienna was the scene of epic battles between Christians and Muslims, as Ottoman Turks besieged the city. A musical capital, Vienna was home to Mozart and Beethoven. Sigmund Freud and Gustav Klimt made Vienna the birthplace of "modernity" around 1900. The city of Adolf Hitler's youth, Vienna saw the destruction of its flourishing Jewish community during WWII. In the Cold War, Vienna, officially "neutral," became a headquarters of the United Nations and the International Atomic Energy Agency—and a hotbed of international espionage. With the fall of the iron curtain, it is again a meeting point between East and West. We cross the former iron curtain during an excursion to Bratislava, Slovakia.
