Fifth International Congress of Hungarian Studies
Jyväskylä, August 2001


SYMPOSIUM: POLITICS AND SOCIETY IN HUNGARY - A CALL FOR PAPERS

Fifth International Congress of Hungarian Studies will take place in
Jyväskylä, Finland, August 6-10, 2001. The main theme of the congress is
"Power and Culture".


As a part of the congress we, professor George Schöpflin (London) and Dr.
Heino Nyyssönen (Jyväskylä), will organise a symposium "Hungary: Politics
and Society" (Politika és társadalom Magyarországon). This is a call for
papers to deal, one way or another, with politics and society in Hungary.

We understand politics widely, a cultural and historical phenomenon and
also as a part of everyday life. Papers could focus on the present
Hungarian democracy and its current problems. However, we do not exclude a
discussion on politics and society during earlier periods, thus like
Austria-Hungary, Horthy or the communist era.

Particularly we expect papers dealing with symbolic and rhetoric dimension
of politics. Among party politics, characters and peculiarities of
political culture are welcome. So are papers concerning Hungarian political
thought including themes like nationalism, national symbols or media.

Send your proposal, not more than one page to Heino Nyyssönen
(hnyysson@dodo.jyu.fi or heino@mail.matav.hu) before August 31, 2000
(postal address below). Do not forget to add your address including your
e-mail.

Official languages of the congress: English and Hungarian. See also
