The Czechoslovak Exile

A talk by Martin Nekola, PhD. Organized by Czechoslovak Society of Arts and Sciences in New York.

 

RSVP: newyork@svu2000.org

The talk will focus on Anti-communist exile in the first decade of the Cold War: its leaders, organizations and intellectual centers in the USA and Western Europe, including the Czechoslovak Society of Arts and Sciences (SVU) and its first president Václav Hlavatý, the world-renowned mathematician.

Martin Nekola, a political scientist and historian, received his PhD in political science from Charles University in Prague. He was a Fulbright Visiting Scholar in 2013 at Columbia University. His research is focused on non-democratic regimes, the era of Communism, Czech communities abroad and the East-European anti-communist exiles in the United States during the Cold War. He has written two hundred articles and has published eight books, including Vyslanci hákového kříže (Emissaries of the Swastika, 2011), Operace Kondor (Operation Condor, 2012), Petr Zenkl: Politik a člověk (Petr Zenkl: Politician and Man, 2014), Krvavé století (Bloody Century, 2015) and České Chicago (Czech Chicago, forthcoming).
