Based on the fact that the Austrian EU presidency hosts a big summit on EU-Latin American relations in early 2006, this extensive volume offers a broad overview from the Austrian perspective for the very first time.
Starting with the diplomatic relations in the 19th and 20th centuries, the contributions focus on exile, culture, film, and literature studies. Especially migration runs along very different patterns when looking at the Nazi period compared to the decades after 1945. Scientific relations are described as well as solidarity movements’ cooperations regarding Chile and Nicaragua. The volume also contains abstracts in German and Spanish.
With contributions by Katrin Achrainer, Rudolf Agstner, Herbert Berger, Günter Bischof, Gerhard Drekonja-Kornat, Klaus Eisterer, Margit Franz, Franz Grafl, Stefan A. Müller, Ursula Prutsch, Claudia Reichl-Ham, Christa Riedl-Dorn, Erwin A. Schmidl, Eva Maria Stehlik, and Gerald Steinacher.
