Peasant Violence and Antisemitism in the Triple Frontier Region between Austria-Hungary, Tsarist Russia and Romania, 1880–1914


MARIN04This project examines the legal status and general fate of the Jewish population in the states around the triple frontier from a comparative, transnational perspective, in connection with the episodes of peasant unrest that punctuated the history of the region at the end of the nineteenth and beginning of the twentieth centuries. It analyses the place occupied by the Jewish population in processes of economic modernisation as well as their discursive conceptualisation within nation-building processes.


Irina Marin received her PhD from University College London and is currently working on a postdoctoral project on the interconnection between peasant violence and antisemitism in Eastern Europe. Her research so far has focussed on identity politics in the Habsburg Empire, frontier studies, and social conflict.
