Selbstorganisation und Demokratie am Arbeitsplatz: Partizipation, ArbeiterInnenkontrolle und Selbstverwaltung in globaler Perspektive
6 .-8. September 2018, Linz/Oberösterreich
Hans Hautmann was born into a Viennese working-class family. In April 1945, during the days of the liberation of Vienna, the Soviet military command appointed Hautmann’s father Rudolf as head of the “Auxiliary Police” (“Polizeilicher Hilfsdienst”) of the City of Vienna, de facto he was the first chief of police of Vienna. In the 1970’s and 1980’s, Hautmann’s mother Leopoldine was a volunteer co-worker in the Documentation Centre of Austrian Resistance (DÖW). From 1966 to 1968 – while studying history and German philology at the University of Vienna – Hans Hautmann himself worked as a volunteer at the DÖW that had only been founded a few years earlier. He contributed to building up the library.
Hautmann’s dissertation on the beginnings of the radical left-wing movement and the Communist Party of German-Austria 1916-1919, completed in 1968, was published in 1971 under the title “Die verlorene Räterepublik” [“The Lost Council Republic”]. In 1969, Karl R. Stadler, university professor in Linz, appointed Hautmann as assistant to the newly founded Institute of Modern and Contemporary History of the Johannes Kepler University. Besides his teaching position, he also worked at the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for the History of the Labour Movement within the course of the following years. In the first one and a half decades of the ITH, this institute was responsible for the edition of the conference proceedings of the Linz Conferences that also comprised shortened and edited summaries of the oral discussions. Hans Hautmann was likewise involved in this painstaking work as well as in the organisational realization of the conferences themselves.
