Edited By Thomas Möbius, Ivana Jozić, Melita Aleksa Varga, Leonard Pon and Ivana Šarić Šokčević

Zwischen dem 18. und 20. Jahrhundert lebten im heutigen Staatsgebiet Kroatiens zahlreiche deutsche Emigranten. Zwischen ihnen und der kroatischen Mehrheitsbevölkerung fanden z.T. intensive kulturelle Austauschprozesse statt. Im zweiten Band zu dem vom DAAD geförderten internationalen Forschungsprojekt werden Ergebnisse zur Erforschung einzelner Aspekte des regionalen deutschsprachigen Presse-, Theater- und Schulwesens vorgelegt. In einzelnen Beiträgen aus diesem Band wird auf den regen Kontakt zwischen deutscher und kroatischer Sprache und Kultur im Bereich des landwirtschaftlichen Wortschatzes, der gymnasialen Schulordnung, aber auch der Philosophie, Literatur und Theaterpoetik sowie Theaterkritik hingewiesen.

One of them was born and lived most of her lifetime in the Military Frontier (in the city of Karlovac), the province stretching along the southern borderlands of the Monarchy/Empire, established by the Habsburgs as a defence system against the Ottomans, while the other two were born or lived for the large part of their lives in the Kingdom of Croatia-Slavonia (in Osijek and in Našice). Another fact of importance for the context of this paper is that in 1527, with the election of the Austrian Habsburg Ferdinand I as Croatian king, not only legislative but also social and cultural links with Austria and German-speaking countries in general started.
