Why we should be talking about the current political crisis in Austria

Professor Frank Uekötter, Professor of Environmental Humanities at the University of Birmingham, presents the latest in a series of Contemporary History Interventions.

Topics covered include the resignation of Sebastian Kurz, Austrian politics, government by coalition, and the question of what is normal in an ideal democracy.

Professor Uekötter teaches on our postgraduate MA Contemporary History degree, designed to provide you with a solid grounding in the major outlines of recent world history, along with a wide choice of specialised modules to suit your own interests. This programme approaches contemporary history through issues and problems with vital on-going importance, including environmental politics, information technology, post-colonial migration, internationalism and empire.
