Seminar #16 : Seminar #16 By Jared Campa Per 1 Question : Question Contrast the impact of nationalism in Germany and the Austrian Empire from 1848 to 1914. Thesis : Thesis In Europe During the time of 1848 to 1914 nationalism grasped the attention of many Europeans of the time. Although many countries used nationalism in settling social, and economical differences, two countries were influenced by nationalism more so than the others, Germany and the Austrian Empire. Due to the ideas of nationalism, the German speaking states finally were able to unify Germany and become the powerful country that the rest of Europe had feared of for years. Austria however was deal a much different hand. Due to the empires vast ethnic and cultural differences nationalism was used by groups of liberal thinkers to get their fellow country men to revolt and break away from Austria. Attempts will happen throughout the second half of the 19th century. Germany : Germany Austria : Austria Conclusion : Conclusion Nationalism is not a way of life, it’s not a type of government it’s a sense of pride in ones nation and loyalty to its government. For countries in Europe during the 19th and early 20th century nationalism played a major role in the development of support by the people and the overall increase of power in governments. This role was impacted in Germany during the time and as a result Germany became one of the, if not the most powerful country in Europe. Nationalism however can cause the devastation of one’s empire, as seen in Austria. Nationalism was the final test to show a countries power and greatness.
