Historian and iASK research fellow, Mónika Mátay, presented the ‘Talking Houses’ project to the international audience. The urban research project, initiated three years ago, is based on the original idea of Elemér Hankiss. The built, silent witnesses, the buildings of Kőszeg are to be animated to reveal the stories they hide. She maintained that besides the macro approach to history, the micro perspective is worth considering to develop a better understanding of our common past and experiences. Research findings create a novel social history database that has never been catalogued before.
