Agnes Kelemen

Agnes completed her Ph.D. at CEU's History Department in 2019. In her dissertation she investigated the connection between academic antisemitism, social mobility and migration through a sociological study of the “numerus clausus exiles” (students who left interwar Hungary due to the antisemitic law restricting Jewish access to higher education). Examining this interwar migratory movement of Jewish youth who often saw themselves as refugees escaping antisemitism brought Agnes to the topic of refugees in a more literal sense.
