Another Hungary tells the stories of eight remarkable individuals: an aristocrat, merchant, engineer, teacher, journalist, rabbi, tobacconist, and writer. All eight come from the same woebegone corner of prewar Hungary. Their biographies illuminate how the regions residents made sense of economic underdevelopment, ethnic diversity, and relations between Christians and Jews. Taken together, their stories create a unique picture of the troubled history of Eastern Europe, viewed not from the capital cities, but from the small towns and villages.
A lunch seminar, "Immigration in Hungary: The Long View," will also be held with Prof. Nemes on Thursday, 10 November from 12-1 pm in Keene-Flint 05.
This speaker series is co-sponsored by the Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere (Rothman Endowment), the History Department, International Studies Center, Center for Global Islamic Studies, Office of Research, Department of Literatures, Languages, and Cultures.
