Students collaborated in groups on contributions to a feuilleton journal modeled on similar publications from turn of the century ViennaTheir completed projects featured their creative interpretations of the cultural, literary, social and artistic trends of fin-de-siècle Vienna.  Examples of the various articles from the six feuilletons produced: a theater critique of Kokoschka’s Murderer, Hope of Women, an editorial by Freud reflecting on Arthur Schnitzler, a review of a Viennese cafe, short stories about the honor code and life in a military boarding school from the teacher’s perspective, poems inspired by Peter Altenberg, interviews with Schnitzler, Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele, an editorial on war and militarism inspired by Karl Kraus’ Last Days of Mankind, and many more fascinating and creative contributions.
