The Austrian Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies (OGE 18) is focusing its endeavours on interdisciplinary research on the multinational and multicultural Habsburg Monarchy of the 18th century. The OGE 18 is organized in an interdisciplinary way: its members belong to disciplines as diverse as general history, philology, history of art, musicology, history of education etc. Its international touch is not only emphasized by its European and non-European members, but also by the fact that together with societies from other countries the OGE 18 joins forces in the International Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies (ISECS). The respective “national” Yearbooks as well as various conferences and workshops organized by the OGE 18 constitute important instruments for exchange within this international network. Every other year the Franz-Stephan-Prize is awarded by the Austrian society. This prize, commemorating the trailblazing role Francis Stephen of Lorraine played in many fields, is given to authors of outstanding thesis and is financed with the financial support of the Austrian Ministry of Culture and Research.
In its contents the “Yearbook” reflects this interdisciplinary and multicultural attitude of the OGE 18. Central themes are treated from the point of view of various disciplines mirroring various cultural contexts. Added to these are “free papers”, miscellanea, reports on the state of research in various fields, and book reviews. All items are peer-reviewed.
Articles which do not respond to a “call for papers” should be addressed to the president of the OGE 18 Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Schmale; Dr. Johannes Frimmel is responsible for the section on book-reviews. The “Yearbook” is distributed by the publishing house Dr. Winkler in Bochum (Germany).
Additional to the Yearbook the OGE 18 also publishes a supplement to the Yearbook and the series of the Österreichische Gesellschaft zur Erforschung des 18. Jahrhunderts which is edited by the president Wolfgang Schmale and published by the publishing house Böhlau.
