The European Studies Program is happy to announce our new Title VIII Research Scholar, Alice Freifeld. She will be in residence at the Wilson Center until July 2012, working on a project tentatively entitled “Displaced Hungarian Jewish Identity, 1945-48.”

From 1993-1994, Alice was a Wilson Center Research Scholar revising her PhD dissertation. The resulting book, “Nationalism and the Crowd in Liberal Hungary, 1948-1914,” was published by the Wilson Center Press in 2000 and was awarded the Barbara Jelavich book prize by the Association for Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies. Alice is a professor of history at the University of Florida. She co-edited East Europe Reads Nietzsche (Columbia U Press, 1998) with Peter Bergmann and Bernice Glatzer Rosenthal and served as the President of the Hungarian Studies Association.
