Distant cousins, or What You Will - Deconstructing a subcultural belief in the history of Japanese-Hungarian Bilateral Relations

Gergely Tóth (Independent Scholar)

The world is full of alternative notions, and there is one peculiar alternative notion in the history of Hungaro-Japanese relations, too. In this presentation, we are going to investigate the historiography of the alternative belief of Hungarian-Japanese kinship. Where is it coming from? How is it being interpreted in contemporary Hungary? Why is it still being used in certain political-ideological spheres?
