Institute for Art Theory and Media Studies, Eötvös Loránd University


Ferenc‘s present research and policy initiative is dedicated to addressing certain dimensions of silencing, self-censorship, and intimidation in academia. This approach involves implementing a mentoring system designed for scholars at risk. A crucial objective of this initiative is to introduce and implement an information technology-based communication system into the academic publication process. This system aims to ensure a reduced level of visibility for scholars facing risks in their academic pursuits.
Ferenc currently is on sabbatical leave from his position at ELTE Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest.

At THE NEW INSTITUTE, Ferenc served as a Yehudit and Yehuda Elkana Fellow in the Academic Year 2023/24.
