Contemporary Austria remains greatly influenced by post-1945 efforts to re-establish an Austrian state and forge a new "Austrian" identity. This volume focuses on the Austrian Second Republic and seeks, in particular, to explore aspects of nation-building and state-building. It adopts a multi-disciplinary perspective, bringing together insights from history, sociology, and cultural studies. With topics ranging from the role of South Tyrol in the formation of Austrian identity, national symbology, immigration, monuments, music, Austrian literature, and energy infrastructure, the volume presents a snapshot of current research on the Austrian Second Republic.
