Future events
Professor Norman Stone will discuss his recently released book, “Hungary, A Short History” with Historian Gergely Romsics.

Covering a period from approximately the end of the Napoleonic Wars in 1815 up to the modern era, this latest book is an impressive addition to the other works of one of Britain’s most famous historians.


NORMAN STONE (Glasgow, 1941) is a British historian, former student then lecturer at the University of Cambridge, professor of history at the University of Oxford, and was a professor of International Relations at the University of Bilkent, Ankara, Turkey. He was also an advisor and speech writer to the British Conservative Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, and is the author of many books on twentieth century history, including The Eastern Front 1914–17 (1975), Hitler (1980), Europe Transformed, 1878–1919 (1983), The Other Russia (1990), and The Atlantic and Its Enemies: A Personal History of the Cold War (2010).

DR. GERGELY ROMSICS is a historian of political thought and public memory. His research has focused on foreign policy thinking and the mnemonic cultures of political elites, topics on which he has authored several monographs. He has contributed to edited volumes on memory and also theories of order and ordering in Europe, with a focus on his native region of East Central Europe. He served as director at the Hungarian Cultural Center in New York for a term (2014-2017). He is a senior research fellow at the Research Center for the Humanities of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and teaches at the School of Social Sciences of Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest. His current research projects include participation as co-author and editor in the multi-year undertaking to develop a new, three-volume handbook of the Horthy-era at HAS and gauging the effect of the Treaty of Trianon on Hungarian foreign policy thinking as a member of the Trianon100 research group.
