New article of IGITI research fellow Jan Surman discusses the history of Habsburg philology as an "a-political" science. On the example of Theodor Gartner, Romance philologist whose work had a great influence on Ukrainian, Romanian and Rhaeto-Roman languages, Surman shows how mobility, research and politics were intertwined in the Habsburg Empire.
