M.A. Thesis: “Combat and Convergence: Fighting the First World War in an Austro-Hungarian Infantry Regiment”

Research Interests

I study nineteenth- and early twentieth-century military culture in Central Europe, with a particular focus on the late Habsburg empire and its successor states. I am especially interested in the creation and cultivation of military identities during the age of nationalism and empire. My ongoing dissertation project examines regimental traditions in the Austro-Hungarian army and their cultural legacies in the successor state of Czechoslovakia.
