Hungarian Studies Review
is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary academic journal dedicated to publishing humanities and social scientific scholarship on contemporary and historical issues related to Hungary and the surrounding region, and to the Hungarian diaspora. Founded in 1974 under the title The Canadian-American Review of Hungarian Studies, and published since 1981 under its current title, Hungarian Studies Review is sponsored by the Hungarian Studies Association of Canada and the Hungarian Studies Association based in the United States. It has also been supported in the past by the National Széchényi Library in Hungary.

Since the journal’s founding, Hungary has changed dramatically, and so have the lives of Hungarians within and outside of Hungary, including in North America. But the mission of Hungarian Studies Review remains the same: to raise interest in, make public, and support in a variety of ways the long tradition of Hungarian Studies in English-speaking higher education.

Hungarian Studies Review has an important role to play as an independent scholarly publication, and its editors are especially committed to providing scholars based in Hungary and the surrounding region with a high-quality English-language outlet for the publication of their research.

Hungarian Studies Review is a joint publication of The Hungarian Studies Association of Canada and the Hungarian Studies Association.

Established in 1985, the Hungarian Studies Association of Canada is a multidisciplinary scholarly organization devoted to the study of Hungary, Hungarian society, culture, and history.

The Hungarian Studies Association was formed in 1970 as The American Association for the Study of Hungarian History. It adopted its current name in 2004. The association represents scholars from the United States, Hungary, Australia, Canada, Israel, Italy, Japan, Germany, Norway, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
