ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership for Social Sciences



I have graduated in Communications major and Art Theory minor (BA and MA), as well as, Medieval Archaeology major and Archaeological Science minor (BA) from the Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest. I finished MA in General History at the Charles University in Prague and M2 in Territory, Space and Society at the École des hautes études en sciences sociales in Paris. During my MPhil in Archaeological Heritage and Museums at the Univesity of Cambridge I was working on the topic of the uses of medieval excavation sites in Hungarian nation-building. At present I am an ESRC DTP PhD Student in Heritage Studies.

My doctoral research focuses on the impact which the WW1 war memory had on the nationalist narratives in the former Western and Eastern blocs. My work compares France, Germany, Hungary and the United Kingdom from the interwar period until the Centenary of the First World War.

As a research assistant I am presently involved in several research projects of members of the Heritage Research Group, while I help establishing the Centre for Heritage Research.
