ELTE - CEU conference on migration


We are pleased to announce a joint conference of ELTE and CEU on migration. The materials of the conference come partly from a seminar held by Antal Örkény és György Csepeli at the Nationalism Studies Program at the CEU in the last academic year. ELTE students are involved in an ongoing migration research group started last October. In addition four short films connected to the issue of migration will be presented. The films were made by the students of the DocNomad Program run by the Szinház-és Filmművészeti Egyetem, Budapest.
