Veronika Wieser has studied History, Classics and Political Science at the University of Vienna (MA in 2006). She has been working at the Institute for Medieval Studies (Austrian Academy of Sciences) since 2003 and has been a junior researcher in the FWF-Wittgenstein-project „Ethnic Identities in Early Medieval Europe“ (2005-2011). She has held a PhD-scholarship at the Institute for Medieval Research between 2009-2013 which was carried out in line with an interdisciplinary research project on Western Apocalypticism and in cooperation with the Institute of History, the Department for German Studies and the Department of Communication at the University of Vienna. In 2010, she was Honorary Research Fellow at the Department for History/ Medieval Area at the University of Glasgow and in 2012, she was Visiting Scholar at the Friedrich-Meinecke Institut, Freie Universität Berlin. Her research concentrates on late antique and early medieval historiography, late antique chronology and geography, and apocalyptic narratives. Within the VISCOM research framework, she is currently finishing her PhD-thesis on the formation of an eschatological discourse in Late Antiquity and the construction of political and religious communities of the End-times. In addition, she shares responsibility for the coordination of the project.
