Making of Modern Hungary: 1867 and Beyond
The Compromise of 1867
was a turning point in modern Hungarian history, and its 150th anniversary

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 welcome.
