Department of German and Austrian Studies

WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE OF THE DEPARTMENT OF GERMAN AND AUSTRIAN STUDIES

In teaching and research at our department, we focus on German-speaking countries and Central Europe. The development of foreign policy and international relations is at the centre of our attention. Furthermore, we follow the changes in politics and the social and cultural situation from 1989 to the present. The comparative history of Central Europe with an emphasis on the Czech lands in the 20th century is another area of interest to us. We look at the whole region from the perspective of various disciplines, varying from political science, economics, and law to cultural and historical sciences.
