George Szirtes’s Blog

One of our distinguished keynotes, poet and translator George Szirtes, has written several thoughtful blog posts on the conference, reflecting on the separate panels and the connecting themes that kept coming up throughout the day. On his website, you can read about the Politics, Language & Literature, Culture & Society panels, as well as his reflections on Dr. Umut Korkut’s keynote critiquing the history of Liberalism in Europe and Hungary, and finally his own keynote on Hungarian identity and the concept of ‘Magyar Ember’ which can be found here and here.

George was one of the many engaging guests at the conference who helped deepen and contextualise the fantastic research presented presented by our postgraduate delegates.
