Erika Szívós, (Eötvös Loránd University, ELTE), Budapest.

How does one use the craft of microhistory to understand the dynamics of a big city local community? Join Erika Szívós and the students of the Microhistory Seminar in a workshop discussing the sources, methods and interpretive challenges of reconstructing the history of an urban neighborhood that passed through the traumas of the Nazi era and early Communism. This workshop is for all faculty, graduate students and undergraduates interested in learning the tools of microhistory as they might be used in modern urban history.

Refreshments will be served following the class.
