Austrian Studies Newsmagazine

The Austrian Studies Newsmagazine (ASN), an English-language periodical that has been published for over 20 years. The ASN is a clearinghouse for information on scholarly activities and opportunities, and also includes lively, thought-provoking interviews and feature articles on current events.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the Center's ongoing efforts to become a more sustainable institution: beginning in Fall 2020 we will be issuing the ASN as a digital-only (though easily printable) publication. Please subscribe below to make sure you receive the next issue "hot off the (virtual) press!"
