Hungarian literary afternoon

Workshop with Hungarian writers: György Dragomán & Anna T. Szabó
15 May 2012

The Finno-Ugrian Studies and the Department of History organize a workshop on the theme “Dictatorship through the eyes of the child”. The guest speakers are György Dragomán and Anna Szabó T. The regional problem of working through the communist past and the universal question of living under suppression as a child will be discussed. Fiction and history will be represented in this program as it is organized by scholars coming from the literary studies (Edit Zsadányi) and history (Mónika Baár).


György Dragomán’s second novel The White King (2005) recalls many elements of the Ceausescu period in Romania from a child’s point of view. The novel became a world-wide success and has been translated into more than 30 languages, including Dutch (De witte koning 2007, 2011).

Anna T. Szabó is a well-known contemporary poet and writer in Hungary. She focuses on the problems of women and gender issues.

The workshop is open to the public, registration is not necessary. Participants are welcome to read chapters or poems available on the websites of the writers.
