As an invited guest speaker, Piret Peiker gave an electronic lecture and seminar for the research group on Politics and Governement at the Public Service University, Budapest, Hungary 16.03.2021.

The paper was entitled ‘Building a Postcolonial State: The Case of the Law on Cultural Autonomy for Ethnic Minorities, Passed in the Estonian Parliament 1925’.

The lecture introduced the historical underpinnings, political imagination and topical debates that shaped the crafting and eventual passing of the law. Drawing upon that, the seminar discussion also focused on the methodology of the approach, and emphasised the relevance of the insights of intellectual history, entangled history, and postcolonial studies for politics and governance in the present world. The seminar was chaired by Prof. Ferenc Hörcher.
