In recent times imperial and national politics have made a strong return to the global scene. This meant a severe setback for postmodern hopes for a transnational and post-imperial world or a global conflict management. CEU’s Departments of History and Medieval Studies invite undergraduate students to rethink the role of empires and nations in history at the Empire and Nation Undergraduate Conference, which is slated for August 6-9, 2015.
The New York State Education Department (NYSED) has approved the proposed changes of degree names at the Department of History, Department of Medieval Studies, and Department of Mathematics and its Applications.
2014 was an especially prolific year for the Department of History: as authors and (co-)editors, faculty members published altogether 12 books with leading international academic publishers.
The chronological coverage is from late antiquity to communist times, the geographic spread is truly transnational (even transcontinental and global), and the topics and approaches range from religious studies, political thought and intellectual history, through history of science and history of empires, to questions of identity, social and political history.
