Ohio State University Global May Hungary program

A group of Ohio State University students and professors have yet again finished a successful summer school program at METU. Every year since 2013,  OSU students and professors come to METU for a month for a summer school which is part of their degree at Ohio State University. OSU has over 100 summer program opportunities and Hungary is one of their top destinations.

During their stay, the students have the opportunity to learn about Central European culture, history and public spaces in their lectures as well as in the trips outside of the classroom. Besides the lectures, the students learn how to live in a metropolitan city and live outside of the USA, not just to visit as a tourist but get to know the day to day lives of the people living in Budapest. Every year the group also visits another Central European country and this year they visited Poland. This year’s program ended with the with PechaKucha presentations.

Distinguished professors and organizers of the program:


Dr. Angela Brintlinger is Professor of Slavic Languages and Cultures and Director of the Center for Slavic and East European Studies at Ohio State University. A specialist in Russia and the Soviet Union, she has also taught as a Fulbright Distinguished Scholar at the Studium Europy Wschodniej, University of Warsaw, and been a guest lecturer at UW’s Collegium Artes Liberales. Dr. Brintlinger has published several monographs and numerous edited collections, translations, and articles on literary and cultural topics, particularly on biography, the representation of war, and everyday life. In 2019 Dr. Brintlinger led the Global May Hungary program to Central Europe.

Dr. Túry György is currently the Vice-Rector for International Academic Relations at Budapest Metropolitan University. He is the Hungarian Founding Co-Director of the Ohio State University Global May Hungary program. Between 2014 and 2018 he was the Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Creative Industries at the same institution. From 2012 to 2014 he was Fulbright Professor at the Ohio State University, and before that a research fellow at Columbia University (Fulbright, 2006), University of California at Irvine (2011), and the British Library. Dr. Túry has guest lectured in many other countries (including Botswana,
Chile, Israel, South Africa, etc.) on his main fields of interest, including Cultural Studies and global higher education.

Dr. Jessie Labov is the Director of Academic and Institutional Development at McDaniel College Budapest. Before coming to McDaniel, she was Associate Professor in the Department of Slavic and East European Languages and Cultures at Ohio State University, and Co-Founder of the Global May Hungary study abroad program.
