Twice during his academic career, Ernest Manheim went abroad to teach as a visiting professor. In 1955/56, he spent one year as a Fulbright Professor at the universities in Graz and Vienna. In 1960/61, he spent a year at the University in Teheran.
Ernest Manheim's sojourn in Graz, on invitation of the Graz sociologist Johann Mokre (1901-1981), was of considerable importance for the institutionalization of the subject at the local university. It was the first visiting professorship in sociology at the University in Graz after the Second World War and, as such, served as an important step in the creation of the Institut für Empirische Soziologie und Statistik [Institute for Empirical Sociology and Statistics], the present Department of Sociology, two years later, in 1958, which was also initiated by Johann Mokre.
