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.
