Persecution and Exile of Austrian Sociological Authors During Fascism

Hundreds of Austrian sociological authors were persecuted and exiled during fascism between 1933 and 1945, most of them Jews, but also a large number of non-Jewish liberals, democrats, socialists and communists. The repression began during “Austro-fascism” between 1933/34 and the “Anschluss” to Nazi Germany in March 1938 – which was welcomed by most of the Austrian population. As soon as Austria joined the “Third Reich” German forces and Austrian volunteers unleashed a wave of terror imprisoning more than 70,000 people in a few days.

A Preview of the Future. Workers’ Control in the Context of a Global Systemic Crisis

A Preview of the Future. Workers’ Control in the Context of a Global Systemic Crisis

Originating in a bold exhibition at the Secession in Vienna, this book examines moments in social and cultural life where there are glimpses of utopia, where other possibilities of being are imagined and even partially realised. The book moves through Latin American carnivals, forgotten histories, queer utopias, science fiction, workers' ™ control of factories and much more.

Este jueves 5 de marzo se cumplen dos años de la muerte del expresidente de Venezuela Hugo Chávez. Durante su gobierno, Chávez acumuló críticas, pero el país gozaba de estabilidad económica. Ahora con Nicolás Maduro la economía está por los suelos, según cifras oficiales. La alta tasa de asesinatos y el cierre de más medios de información contribuyen a la crisis. ¿Qué futuro tiene el país?
