Rethinking 1918: Interventions into the Future

Thursday, 21 March 2019, 6:30 – 8pm

Rethinking 1918: Interventions into the Future

A public lecture by Dr Peter Apor (Institute of History, Hungarian Academy of Sciences) as part of the '1918 and the New Europe' Lecture Series.

This talk explores the ways of imagining and planning of possible futures that emerged in the postwar period of Europe in 1918. Elites, intellectuals and large proportions of European societies believed that it was possible to anticipate the future and foresee decisive trends of socio-developments, therefore it was possible to plan for even large systematic changes. However, the multiplication of ideas about what form that future would take suggests much uncertainty about the “future” of Europe itself and brings to the fore the deep layers of individual identities present at the time.
