Isabella Walser-Bürgler studied Latin and Greek in Innsbruck, earning her MA with an edition of an 18th-century Neo-Latin didactic poem (Giovanni Battista Graser, De praestantia logicae). In 2011, Isabella joined the LBI as a Junior Researcher in the research line ‘Politics’ and began her doctorate in Neo-Latin literature at the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität in Freiburg i.Br. (Germany), which serves as one of the cooperative partners of the LBI. She gained her PhD in December 2014. In February 2015, she returned to Innsbruck and was appointed Key Researcher, coordinating the LBI’s 'Politics' research line and supervising its respective research projects.

In the 'Politics' research line at the LBI, Isabella has from 2011-2014 investigated the interplay between early modern politics and the belles lettres, in particular between the supra-national Habsburg rule and a specific subgenre of the Neo-Latin political novel, the so-called ‘Habsburg novel’. The results were disclosed in Isabella’s doctoral thesis on one of the most popular examples of the Habsburg novel, Anton Wilhelm Ertl’s Austriana regina Arabiae (1687). From 2015-2017, Isabella was dedicated to working on her post-doc project on Europe and European identity in Neo-Latin literature. Its main conclusions and findings were brought together in a couple of selected articles as well as in a concise monograph (forthcoming in 2021).

In 2018 the LBI launched its second research period and the 'Politics' line was converted into the 'Education' line. While still being in charge of the line, Isabella is writing a monograph on inaugural orations at early modern German universities, given by professors to be officially admitted to their office. This study aims to highlight the intricate role of professorial inaugural orations as think-tanks exploring contemporary developments in politics, religion, culture, scholarship and science on the one hand, and as instruments of scholarly self-fashioning, professionalism and career-building on the other. The project serves Isabella for habilitation (working title: Oratio inauguralis: The Rhetoric of Professorship at German Universities, 1650-1750).
