Pomp and politics of patriotism: Imperial celebrations in Habsburg austria, 1848-1916

Abstract

The Pomp and Politics of Patriotism concentrates on the official presentation of the imperial cult, using the image of Franz Joseph (Habsburg emperor from 1848-1916) as a symbol of common identity in the Austrian half of the Habsburg Monarchy (Cisleithania), including the use of or rejection of this imagery by regional social and nationalist factions. During this period, the compelling notion was to use the imperial cult to define Habsburg patriotism. The story of the successes and setbacks in this endeavor, which illuminates the tension between national and supra-national identity in an age of expanding political participation, is the exploration of The Pomp and Politics of Patriotism.
