47th Annual Conference
April 27 – 29, 2023
Quinnipiac University, Hamden, Connecticut USA

The American Hungarian Educators Association (AHEA) will hold its 47th Annual Conference in person at Quinnipiac University, Hamden, Connecticut, USA.  We welcome participation by academics, independent scholars, educators, and graduate students who are devoted to the teaching, research, and dissemination of Hungarian culture, history, folklore, literature, linguistics, pedagogy, fine arts, and music. This year’s conference theme:  Dependencies and Alliances

Abstracts are invited that report the results of original research.  Abstracts can address a broad range of topics dealing with all the aspects of interaction between Hungarians and others, or Hungarians and Hungarian communities abroad.  We also welcome abstracts that combine original research studies and provide direction for future research.

Abstracts should consist of a title (no more than 135 characters in length including spaces); 200-250-word abstract, specify the type of presentation (paper, panel, roundtable, book presentation or workshop); list author(s) on the paper, a brief biography, including degrees and scholarly fields (50-100 words) and email contact information. Kindly proofread before submitting online at https://ahea.net/conferences/2023-qunnipiac-university-hamden-ct/submit-abstract. Abstracts are reviewed on a rolling basis; the REVISED DEADLINE is February 15, 2023.

The official languages of the conference are English and Hungarian; abstracts and presentations in either language are welcome.  Authors will receive notification of acceptance in early Spring.  Authors whose papers are accepted are expected to attend AHEA23 in Hamden, CT, to be current members of AHEA, and to pay the Conference fee.  Information on joining or renewing membership may be found on the AHEA website.

Abstracts in the following categories are invited:

  • Paper Presentation Individual paper presentations describe original research by the author. Fifteen minutes is allotted for the paper and fifteen for discussion.
  • Panel Discussion is a forum for interactive discussion of a topic among a panel of experts. Typically, a panel of two or three speakers makes introductory remarks.  The audience is then invited to make comments and question the panel.  Panel discussions are scheduled for 60 minutes and run concurrently with other sessions. 
  • Roundtable discussion Roundtables are 60 minutes in length and are intended for informal discussions of pressing current topics important to scholars in the field and to provide a venue to both share and learn from each other.   Each submission should have no less than three participants knowledgeable in the discipline.
  • Book Presentation Recently published books are invited for presentation either by the author or by an interested reader.  These are short, max 10-minute synopsis of a book published within the last year of potential interest to the members of AHEA.
  • Workshops provide training on a specific skill, technique or process and may involve one or more instructors. Workshops are intended to emphasize learning through participation, discussion and “hands-on” activities. Workshop organizers must specify an upper limit on attendance.  Workshops are scheduled for 90 minutes.
