Q: What made you decide to work in North America?
I was interested in doing research abroad and with the stipend I got a great opportunity to do so. My main topic is the American perspective of the 1930s in Central Europe. I'm working on design concepts and different ways to create national identity on that focus.

Q: What are the benefits of this network and of being a part of it?
The Center for Austrian Studies provides a great network of scientists and information in Austrian History fields. I got the chance to get in touch with researchers working on similar topics as I do. These contacts benefit my research with different ideas and perspectives.{/access}
