Two Alumnae and a PhD student joined the research team of the The Jagiellonians: Dynasty, Memory and Identity in Central Europe project

February 19, 2015

Two alumnae of Medieval Studies Department, Giedre Mickunaite and Stanislava Kuzmova, and one of our PhD students, Janos Incze, have joined the research team of an ERC-funded project The Jagiellonians: Dynasty, Memory and Identity in Central Europe based at the History Faculty, University of Oxford.
The Jagiellonians (1386-1596), stemming from Lithuania and Poland, were one of the important families in late medieval and early modern Europe, ruling lands which constitute no fewer than 14 present-day states. Our alumnae work as research associates for the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and the Kingdom of Hungary, respectively. Our PhD student, Janos Incze joined the research as a reseach assistant providing materials on the cultural memory of the Jagiellonians in Romania.
The project, led by Dr Natalia Nowakowska, aims to offer a new study of the Jagiellonians as a major international political phenomenon and explore how dynasties functioned in general. The team also examines their legacy by looking at the highly divergent ways in which they have been remembered across Central Europe.
