Reports about the Departmental Research Seminars are available

December 21, 2014

The series of research seminars offers an opportunity to get acquainted with and discuss the most recent research undertaken by the faculty, research fellows, and doctoral students of the History Department. Formerly known as the Scholarly & Social Meetings, the series carries on the tradition of previous years to encourage both intellectual and social exchanges between the students, guests, and members of the faculty.

The lectures of the fall term gave insight into various fields of research work carried out at the History Department of CEU. Presentations were held on the following topics:

Carsten L. Wilke: “Sephardi Samizdat: Clandestine Anti-Christian Literature in The Portuguese Jewish Diaspora 1580-1740”
