One History – Multiple Explanations. Interpretations of Hungarian History

One history - many explanations. Interpretations of Hungarian history  - lecture series by Krisztián Ungváry
Tuesday, February 7, 2023, 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Blinken OSA invites the public to a lecture series by historian Krisztián Ungváry, addressing the controversial turning points of Hungarian history. Exploring general themes like the historian as “judge” and case studies, such as the diverse memories of the Austro-Hungarian Compromise of 1867 or the Hungarian Revolution of 1956, the lectures aim to outline historical reality as well as the inner logic of the discourses manipulating, distorting reality.

The lecture series will be held in Hungarian at CEU in Budapest, between February 7 and May 2.

Registration is free but required, RSVP and more info (only in Hungarian) here:
