Endre Szentkirály, PhD, author and researcher
Chronicling the history of Cleveland Hungarians, Dr. Szentkiralyi looks at the community historically and sociologically via in-depth research into its language and literature, culture, and traditions, with a focus on the years from 1950 to the present. He documents contemporary Cleveland Hungarians’ culture, values, language use, and traditions and analyzes which elements serve to perpetuate their community and slow assimilation. The lecture will encapsulate what it means to be Hungarian in Cleveland. Today, its extensive roots – significantly shaped by succeeding generations – run deep, and this research attests to the fact that it is still thriving. The lecture will address recent developments in the community and offer a hopeful outlook for its changing and enduring future.
