Distinguished Austrian historian Gerald Stourzh, professor emeritus at the University of Vienna, is one of the few prominent scholars equally at home with U.S. history and the history of central Europe.
Stourzh will discuss his storied career and his latest book, a collection of 15 essays previously published from 1953 to 2005, in a lecture at the Library of Congress titled "Traces of an Intellectual Journey: Gerald Stourzh Presents His Book ‘From Vienna to Chicago and Back" at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 24.
The event, which will take place in Room 119 of the Thomas Jefferson Building, 10 First St. S.E., Washington, D.C., is free and open to the public; NO TICKETS OR RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED. The lecture is sponsored by the John W. Kluge Center and the European Division, both of the Library of Congress, and the Austrian Cultural Forum of Washington.
