About Vienna's multi-ethnical identity history and influence of national minorities
Andreas Raab, who is the current Fulbright German Language Teaching Assistant at CSB/SJU, explores the interrelation between immigration and urban identity from a historical perspective. Andreas argues that multi-ethnicity is a decisive factor of Viennese identity and gives numerous examples explaining how transnational migration shaped the city's characteristics. In doing so, he also includes some background knowledge and information about Austrian (or rather Viennese) culture. To conclude, Andreas would like to introduce ideas for further research in this field, especially how to conduct a comparative study between Vienna and a US-American urban area.
