The University of Szeged and Eötvös Loránd University organised this year’s Conference of Young Scholars (FIKON) between 25–26 October 2018, where the participants discussed contemporary phenomena from the points of view of literature and history. The external member of our project, Janka Kovács spoke about sermons serving as the media of knowledge transfer and the representations of mental illnesses in late eighteenth-century and early nineteenth-century sermons.
