Subscription includes membership in the Austrian Studies Association, formerly known as the Modern Austrian Literature and Culture Association.
The Journal of Austrian Studies is an interdisciplinary quarterly that publishes scholarly articles and book reviews on all aspects of the history and culture of Austria, Austro-Hungary, and the Habsburg territory. It is the flagship publication of the Austrian Studies Association and contains contributions in German and English from the world's premiere scholars in the field of Austrian studies. The journal highlights scholarly work that draws on innovative methodologies and new ways of viewing Austrian history and culture. Although the journal was renamed in 2012 to reflect the increasing scope and diversity of its scholarship, it has a long lineage dating back over a half century as Modern Austrian Literature and, prior to that, The Journal of the International Arthur Schnitzler Research Association.

The Ks: The Other Couple in the Case of Freud’s “Dora”

Andrew W. Ellis, Oliver Raitmayr, and Christian Herbst

Hans and Peppina Zellenka featured prominently in Freud’s case study of the teenage girl “Dora,” in which they were anonymized as “the Ks.” Much has been written about Dora, but until recently, little has been known about the Ks. This article describes the upbringings of Hans and Peppina in the Jewish communities of Vienna and the South Tirol and their coming together at the health resort of Meran (where Peppina’s father was a bank director and where Peppina began an affair with Dora’s father). The article also describes the Ks’ move to Vienna in 1900 and their continuing involvement with the Bauers there. Hans Zellenka died in 1928. Dora escaped from Vienna in 1938, but Peppina remained and was deported to the Theresienstadt concentration camp in 1942, at the age of seventy-two. She survived thirty months in the camp before being released. Peppina Zellenka died in Mayrhofen in 1949, having told no one of her involvement in the Dora story.

Planetary Alienation: Negation of the Whole Earth in 1970s Austrian Prose

Paul Buchholz

This article examines the reception of the “Whole Earth” paradigm in the late 1970s novels of Peter Handke (Langsame Heimkehr), Gerhard Roth (Winterreise) and Peter Rosei (Von hier nach dort). In histories of German and Austrian literature, the themes of planet earth and planetary crisis around 1980 have been understood as indications of a “catastrophe literature” that hyperbolically (and uncritically) reproduced contemporary fears of ecological and nuclear crisis. This article argues that the planetary images in Handke’s, Roth’s, and Rosei’s novels do not simply function as the endorsement (or refutation) of an ecological-alarmist attitude but rather serve as a reflections on the processes of identification and understanding triggered by the mass dissemination of the “Whole Earth” photographs around 1970. Handke’s, Roth’s, and Rosei’s novels perform a social critique function by narrating the ways in which the alienated consciousness of a male loner is affected by a confrontation with the earth-image.

000      Expert on Poland and Enemy of Prussia: Leopold von Andrian as Austro-Hungarian Envoy in Warsaw from 1911 to 1917

Stephan Lehnstaedt

The Austro-Hungarian poet and diplomat Leopold Freiherr von Andrian zu Werburg was a key figure in the Dual Monarchy’s foreign policy toward occupied Poland during the First World War. From 1911 to late 1916, Andrian was active in the Polish capital Warsaw, first as consul general and then, after a short pause at the outbreak of the war, as an envoy to the German Generalgouvernement Warschau. In these positions, he developed a significant influence on the Austro-Hungarian policy toward Poland, especially with respect to rival Prussian ambitions. The article examines Andrian’s discourse strategies toward Vienna, through which he aimed to put forward his own views. Andrian’s views were typical of the conservative elite of the Dual Monarchy, but he did not act very diplomatically, which led to many troubles with the ally. In the end, he and the Ballhausplatz failed to understand the dynamics of nationalism and world war.

000      Platos and Woman-Haters: Male-Male Love in the Fiction of Fin-de-Siècle Austria: Emerich von Stadion’s “Leonor” (1868) and Leopold von Sacher-Masoch’s Die Liebe des Plato (1870)

James P. Wilper

This essay examines two late nineteenth-century works of fiction that thematize love and desire between men. The first of these is Emerich von Stadion’s short story “Leonor.” This tale of a young man being hoodwinked by a cross-dressing woman inspired Leopold von Sacher-Masoch’s Die Liebe des Plato. Although the two works are similar, there is a key difference between the two texts with regard to how they portray male-male love.
