History Department "Mega" Book Launch

 Time: 17:30, Thursday, 5 February - CEU, Nádor u. 9, Gellner Room

 2014 was an especially prolific year for the History Department: as authors and (co-)editors, faculty members published altogether 11 books with leading international academic publishers. The chronological coverage is from late antiquity to communist times, the geographic spread is truly trans-national (even trans-continental and global), and the topics and approaches range from religious studies, political thought and intellectual history, through history of science and history of empires, to questions of identity, social and political history.

The volumes will be presented by colleagues in the Departments of History and Medieval Studies. Come and join the celebration of this achievement, get acquainted with the diversity and brilliance of the outcome of research done at the History Department!
