We are proud to announce that Zuh Deodáth, postdoctoral fellow at our Institute, had been awarded the Arnold Hauser Prize. The award ceremony took place at Bartók-room of the Institute of Musicology RCH, HAS on the 9th of November 2017.

Arnold Hauser, theoerist and sociologist of art is the eponym of the prize established by his widow, Rózsa Borus in 1980s. The basic intention behind this form of recognition was to promote the followers of Hauser’s synthetic style of theorizing with prestigious publications in the field of a broadly conceived history of philosophy, art, and intellectuals. This prize was awarded every two or four years following its establishment under the auspecies of the Hauser Arnold Foundations’ Board of Trustees. The Boards has been presided succesively by Miklós Szabolcsi, Béla Németh G., and, currently, by Ernő Marosi. For the list of Hauser Arnold Prize laureates see link.
