Course Description: 
1Since its founding in Roman times, Vienna has been a crossroads between East and West, a place where peoples, cultures, and ideas have clashed, cross-pollinated, and found artistic and political accommodation. A polyglot musical culture, for example, materially supported by the Catholic Church and an artistically ambitious aristocracy, gave rise to a classical tradition that endures to the present day. This course will look at contemporary Vienna through the shifting prism of history, examining such topics as the cultural and political legacies of the Hapsburg Empire, the clash between Islam and Christendom, the period from the Edict of Toleration to the Holocaust, the Austrian Baroque and Viennese Classicism, Fin de Siècle Vienna, and the Viennese melting pot in the age of the European Union. This course will include daily readings, lectures, discussions, on-site visits to museums, art galleries, churches, palaces, and the United Nations, and attendance at two operas and three concerts.
