Ville Häkkinen


General description

I'm a post-doctoral researcher of Central European political history and history politics in the 20th Century. In my dissertation (2019) I analysed the debate over the concept of the nation and national history in the Hungarian parliament in the 1920s. My central reserarch interests lay in political language, especially history politics, national stereotypes as well as inclusive and exclusive national discourses.
