Dynamic Empire: Climate and Circulation in Late Imperial Austria

“Dynamic Empire” is a critical history of naturalized concepts of circulation and scale in their relation to projects of empire. It argues that a new way of thinking about the relationship between the local and the global emerged in part from efforts to reimagine the space of the Habsburg Monarchy between 1848 and 1918. It shows both how Habsburg governance shaped scientific practice, and how scientific models shaped the imaginations of Habsburg subjects.
