From its inception in 1977, the Center for Austrian Studies has served as a critical research hub for the study of Austria and Central Europe. For close to four decades, CAS has fostered the study of Central Europe across the academic disciplines both at the University of Minnesota and in the broader North American context. At the same time, it has encouraged collaboration with Austrian and other European scholars by facilitating and supporting transatlantic research projects.
