The World of Yesterday

16 October 2024, 3:00pm - 4:00pm

‘Here, all the streams of Europe converged.’ In this illustrated lecture-recital, Philip Ross Bullock takes inspiration from Stefan Zweig’s memoir, The World of Yesterday, to trace the many languages and cultures that made up turn-of-the-century Vienna. As the capital of the Hapsburg Empire, Vienna was home to publishing houses that issued translations from a wide range of languages and cultures, as well as musicians who spoke – and sang – languages as diverse as Hungarian, Czech, Slovak, Ukrainian, Romanian and Yiddish. Their tale is as central to Vienna’s cultural identity as that of its German-speakers.
