Come join us at the Cleveland Hungarian Museum on Saturday, September 11th for our first program:
A Tale of Twelve Cities: a Comparative Analysis of Successful Strategies for Retaining Ethnic Identity.
Presented by: Dr. Endre Szentkirályi
Communities throughout the Hungarian diaspora are always at cultural crossroads; how can they slow down the inevitable forces of cultural assimilation and to what extent will they endure? Dr. Szentkirályi provides a well-researched analysis of twelve communities throughout North America.
From Boston to California, Alberta to Florida, Ontario to Ohio, and places in between, examining these communities can shed light on the broader context of Hungarians abroad. These examples show how groups can use the power of community to maintain a strong ethnic identity into the second and even the third generations. This inspiring talk will show how the Hungarian diaspora can maintain its language, culture, and traditions, and in so doing illuminate what it really means to be Hungarian in North America.
This presentation will be live at the Museum, with an opportunity for our out-of- town friends to participate via Zoom.
