Slovak Nationalism and the Myth of Magyarization, 1868-1918
Friday 13 November 2015, 08:00pm - 10:00pm
Dr. Thomas Lorman (Teaching Fellow - School of Slavonic and East European Studies, UCL)

The talk would re-examine the impact of magyarization in modern-day Slovakia before 1918 and argue that it was neither effective or particularly instrumental in fomenting discontent. Dr. Lorman shall propose alternate reasons for the rise of Slovak nationalism, primarily that it was a revolt against the liberal policies pursued by the Hungarian government after 1868.
