  Add to Calendar 2020-12-09 15:00 2020-12-09 16:30 Europe/Paris Mitteleuropa and Paneuropa as ideas and networks during the interwar period (1922-1938)

After the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the successor states were struggling with a structural economic crisis. As a solution, the Hungarian economist Elemér Hantos proposed to recreate the economic area of the former Dual Monarchy (enlarged to the new borders of the successor states) without, however, restoring the pre-war political order. As member of the Pan-European Union of Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi, Elemér Hantos developed a regionalist approach to Pan-European integration.

The seminar aims at analysing the relationship between Mitteleuropa and Paneuropa as ideas and networks during the interwar period. It will shed light on the ambivalent relationship of Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi towards Mitteleuropa and try to determine to what extent Elemér Hantos influenced the ideological shift of the Pan-European programme in the 1930s, from politics and the Franco-German couple to economics and the Danubian States.

The seminar will be held exclusively on Zoom.
