This project concerns itself with the integral role that the United States of America, at both an institutional and societal level, played in the Habsburg story from 1916 to the 1945. A 2023 research trip is intended to forward my Transatlantic qualitative analysis of interwar, Second World War and early Cold War Habsburg Monarchist Reactionism as an international geo-political phenomenon. It will specifically examine republican and legitimist (pro-Habsburg) activism of Austrian exiles in the US from 1930-1955, perceptions of Central Europe, Austria and the Habsburg family within the US popular imagination and their impact on US foreign policy.
