Series:

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.

The town of Pula, on the north-eastern Adriatic peninsula of Istria, is a good example of such a culturally diverse urban setting. Now in the Republic of Croatia, in the period referred to here it was part of the crown land of the Austrian Littoral within the Austrian half of the empire (and was often referred to by its Italian name, Pola). After being designated as the new main port of the imperial navy, the previously small and run-down fishing town, littered with the weedgrown remains of its “glory days” as an ancient Roman colony, quickly developed into a more or less modern Mediterranean-Mitteleuropean town and became a magnet for people of diverse origins, native languages, professions and levels of education seeking to make a living in the relative prosperity created by the presence of the navy and a...
