The University of Jyväskylä’s Hungarian Studies Program celebrated its twentieth anniversary with an international conference, held on March 15, 2011. The event was opened by Rector Matti Manninen, who at that time served as the Vice-Rector of the university. The conference participants included people from six European countries who not only commended Jyväskylä’s Hungarian Studies Program, but took accounts of the history of the main international institutions of Hungarian Studies as well, devoting special attention to the developments in the last two decades after the political transition in Hungary.
It is our pleasure to inform You that the Proceedings of Symposium for PhD Students at 7th International Congress of Hungarian Studies were published by International Association for Hungarian Studies.

Marginalia on Casanova is the first book of the epic ten volume St.
Orpheus Breviary which, as Csaba Sík noted, “represents the greatest
enterprise in scope, in worth? – undertaken in the Hungarian novel.”
As Szentkuthy’s Virgil, St. Orpheus is an omniscient poet who guides
us not through hell, but through all of recorded history, myth,
religion, and literature, albeit reimagined as St. Orpheus
metamorphosizes himself into kings, popes, saints, tyrants, and
At once pagan and Christian, Greek and Hebrew, Asian and European, St.
Orpheus is a mosaic of history and mankind in one supra-person and
veil, an endless series of masks and personae, humanity in its
protean, futural shape, an always changing function of discourse,
text, myth, and mentalité.
