View of the Blue Danube.

My project took me to Budapest, Hungary where I researched the conflicting notions of identity and nationhood present in Hungarian literature. I spent the majority of my time brushing up on my Hungarian language skills and sifting through authors' personal diaries, letters & memorabilia in the National Library and antique bookstores. My trip was funded by the Rackham Summer Research Award.
