Cultural Studies paper by Oláh, Krisztina (all papers)
What are the Communication Patterns of Hungarian Americans?
The summary of Krisztina Olah's 2012 master paper helps to better understand the trends and patterns of the Hungarian-American communication.
Since when has there been Hungarian-American communication at all? How do the different Hungarian communities and organizations throughout the United States organize (or not organize) their communication? Why is communication so important for the ethnic minorities? Ms. Olah’s creative project looked for answers for these questions.
The speaker conducted a qualitative research in the Cleveland Hungarian community during the years of 2011 and 2012. Analyzing the past and finding the communication patterns of the present helped to create a more effective and well-based communication strategy for the future. The multiple interviews with individuals, families, leaders of Hungarian organizations, businesses and churches, local journalists and minority organizations provided interesting findings not only about the Cleveland region but also about other regions and cities where Hungarians live. The paper gives direct suggestions and the best examples of practices for the Hungarian communities and organizations who want to improve the communication and information sharing among their members.
