All of the academic staff at the section are committed to the principle of research-based teaching. The range of courses and research core areas are closely linked. At the centre of teaching efforts is thus the history of the early modern political culture in Europe, paying special attention to aspects of legal, media and communication history, as well as to the field of 18th century knowledge cultures and historical museology.
Since we are really enthusiastic about teaching, we have been organising and administering the certified subject focus “Culture Management – Applied Cultural Studies”, which allows students of all disciplines in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities to acquire a practical additional qualification.
In order to provide students with experience in academic publishing, we regularly invite them to participate in online publication projects of the section. Furthermore, since 2007, interested students have the opportunity to try their hand at publishing with the “Journal for Intelligence, Propaganda and Security Studies” (JIPSS) published in-house.
Together with colleagues from the Economic and Social History section, an e-learning programme was also developed for the Bachelor's Degree Programme History, which serves as the basis for the final exams.
International doctoral workshops give young scientists the opportunity to present their own work and to establish a network with the scientific community. The research network for the early modern period “The Exercise of Judgment”, which is financed with structural funds for higher education (HRSM), helps to connect researchers from the University of Graz, the University of Klagenfurt, the University of Salzburg and the University of Vienna and has the goal of enabling doctoral students to get in touch with the scientific community.
