Dr. Enikő Bus, Fulbright Scholar
Hungary has a rich and colorful tradition of folk customs. Dr. Bus will speak about the annual cycle of traditions that are celebrated in Hungary. Starting with the New Year, virtually every month is rich with traditions pertaining to both the calendar year as well as the life cycle. We will discuss how these traditions have been modified over the years and still celebrated in many meaningful ways.
Dr. Zsolt Hetesy, Department Chief of Mission, Hungarian Embassy
Dr. Hetesy will discuss the meaning of membership in the European Union (EU). He will describe how the EU is structured; what the advantages and obligations of membership are; how representatives are elected to the European Parliament; what the different political parties and groups in the EU are; and how Hungarians in Hungary view the EU today; and why there is continued criticism, and even the threat of censure toward Hungary.
