Anikó Imre: TV Socialism (English > Hungarian)
I intend to translate TV Socialism by Anikó Imre into Hungarian. This monograph is an ingenious historiography of television in socialist Europe during the Cold War. Besides its innovative research methodologies, it challenges our stereotypical understandings of culture under socialism and the relations between East and West. The translation, as a project of the Pompeji Foundation publishing house, could serve as a major impulse for furthering Hungarian discourse on socialism, history, and media and visual culture studies.
