Current Research projects


Professor Judson’s current research explores the possibilities and modalities of writing non-nation-based and non-nationalist narrative histories of Central and Eastern Europe in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. In doing so he seeks to de-pathologize and to Europeanize our understandings of Central and Eastern Europe, placing the history of these regions firmly in a comparative European context. This research will result in a single-authored book for Harvard University Press and an edited volume for Cambridge University Press. In addition Judson is currently collaborating on a project to write a history of Austria-Hungary during the First World War for Oxford University Press that focuses on society and culture. As part of his interest in gender and sexuality studies, Professor Judson is also investigating a case of female-to-male sex change in fin-de-siècle Vienna.
