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 welcome.

Abstracts should consist of 200-250 words and must be submitted online. Due date is  January 5, 2017. A more detailed CFP is on the websites above.
