This conference seeks to bring together scholars of Austrian and American history along with others who have an interest in evaluating and utilizing letters from the past as sources. Representatives of the Austrian Migrant Letter Collection project, sponsored by the University of Salzburg, will discuss some of their findings. Representatives from the History Department and World War II Institute at Florida State University will provide insights from their collection. The organizers welcome other scholars with expertise in epistolary critique as well as those interested in Austrian migration more broadly. After the conference, the group plans to publish a selection of papers in a special edition of the Journal of Austrian-American History. There is no fee to participate. The conference sponsors will cover hotel and meal costs for accepted participants. Airfare will be available for a limited number of scholars as well.

Conference sponsored by the Department of History and Institute for World War II and the Human Experience at Florida State University and the University of Salzburg.

Please send an abstract of 150-250 words describing the paper you would like to present to ssinke@fsu.edu by 22 October 2017
