Hungary in Early Modern Europe

Prize: Fellowship awarded competitivelyAcademic

Kees Teszelszky (Recipient)

This research programme has aimed to reconstruct the embeddedness and presence of Hungary in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Europe. We have studied the rich intellectual, diplomatic and cultural relations and communication networks between tripartite Hungary and the rest of Europe, using a variety of new research methods. We have put special emphasis on the study of the making of the image and self-image of Hungary, and on the ways knowledge exchange and information flow influenced this dynamic process, and the local uses of these images. It has been understood that these studies must be connected to a parallel investigation of new areas of contemporary political culture and political discourses, as well as to an analysis of later historiographical traditions and schools. Some of the numerous political leaders and intellectual figures who developed into the focal points of our research acquired importance also in the structuring of our programme. Out of the 96 publications, in which we have presented our new, internationally relevant results (contributing to the growth of new research areas) 39 were written in foreign languages. We have published (some of them still in press) 2 larger and 3 smaller monographs, a volume of collected studies, 7 volumes of edited essays, 29 journal articles, 49 book chapters, etc. We have based our results on extensive archival research carried out in more than 25 European cities, and presented them on more than 50 conferences.
