Graduate Students Present at Congress of Humanities and Social Sciences

Congratulations to MA students Yawei Zhang, Peter DeLorenzi, and Michael McNeil who presented papers in June at the annual meeting of the Hungarian Studies Association of Canada, which was part of the Congress of Humanities and Social Sciences held at the University of British Columbia.

Yawei (Alex) Zhang's paper looked at “The House of Terror Museum and the Politics of Memory in Post-Communist Hungary.” Peter Delorenzi discussed “Empire and the Jewish Experience in Early Twentieth-Century Hungary.” Michael McNeil presented a paper on “Franz Nopcsa and the Future of Empire: The Balkans and Beyond.”

This was the first academic conference for all three, and they represented themselves and the department very well.
