*For the joint meeting of the*
*American Hungarian Educators Association (AHEA)*
and the
*Hungarian Studies Association of Canada (HSAC)*
*Ryerson University, Toronto, ON Canada*
*27-29 May 2017*

We invite participation by academics, independent scholars, other
educators, and graduate students who are devoted to the teaching, research,
and dissemination of Hungarian culture, history, folklore, literature,
language, fine arts, music, and dance. This year’s theme:

*Sovereignty, Compromise, and the*
*Making of Modern Hungary: 1867 and Beyond*

The Compromise of 1867 was a turning point in modern Hungarian history, and
its 150th anniversary invites critical reflection on a wide range of topics
dealing with the past, present, and future of Hungarian sovereignty and of
Hungarian state and nation building more generally.

Topics for papers and panels may include the significance, impact, and
legacy of the 1867 Compromise; the challenges of state and nation building
in Hungary and the former Austro-Hungarian Empire (and its successor
states) since the late nineteenth century; European integration and the
question of sovereignty and independence; the history and legacy of
colonialism and imperialism; ideas about Hungary’s place in and
relationship to Europe; relations with ethnic minorities; the history and
legacy of Jewish emancipation; immigration and the question of
assimilation; and issues of identity and subjectivity in the modern era.

Proposals in any discipline in the humanities, social sciences, and arts,
including those that might address themes from a cross-disciplinary
perspective and thus bring fresh or enriched insights are welcome.

Papers that do not relate to the overall theme outlined above are also

Abstracts should consist of 200-250 words and must be submitted online. Due
