Intimate Internationalism: Micro-Macrohistories of the Socialist Self

a public lecture by

 

József Böröcz  

Rutgers University

The lecture will focus on the three-and-a-half-month long tour of the Performing Arts Ensemble of the Hungarian People's Army in China during the fall of 1956. The project explores the intersections between memory, oral history, conventional archival evidence, as 

well as cinematic and photographic techniques of memo-technique, to reconstruct some of the immediate, lived experiences of the participants in the context of sudden and momentous macro-political transformations. 

József Böröcz is Professor of Sociology at Rutgers University, affiliated currently with the CEU Institute for Advanced Study. For more on his work and interests, please consult his extensive website at http://borocz.net or his blog at http://globalsocialchange.blogspot.com .
