Location: Montgomery Botanical Center, Nixon Smiley Meeting Room

About the Speaker: Dr. Erdei is Chief Museologist at the Hungarian Natural History Museum, and Research Fellow at Montgomery Botanical Center. Her yearlong fellowship at MBC is funded by the Hungarian American Enterprise Scholarship Fund (HAESF). Dr. Erdei is an expert on fossil cycads, and is working to compare these fossils to our living cycad collection.

About the Presentation: As part of her Fellowship, MBC and HAESF are excited to have Dr. Erdei offer an informal presentation about Hungary. She writes:

“I would like to invite you to an unconventional presentation, to have a taste of culture including some Hungarian cookies, coffee and other snacks. With this short (approx. half hour) presentation I would like to introduce my country and my home institution in a nutshell. I hope we can have a pleasant time together and share some Christmas cheer.”
