Open guest lecture: Julia Fodor Ph.D.

Jane Roe, the woman who has been catapulted to world “fame” as the plaintiff of Roe v. Wade, a victim of gang rape and abuse, and whose name is inseparably coupled with women’s right to abortion in America, passed away in 2017. We will see why she was still the most frequently mentioned name in the nation-wide uproar throughout the Brett Kavanaugh hearings and investigations in 2018.

Julia Fodor has been a lecturer in American, British and Irish Culture and History since 1997, first at Eötvös Loránd University, and since 2001 at Károli Gáspár University. She resides in Budapest, Hungary, but she went to high school in the USA, lived in Spain and just recently returned from living in the UK with her husband and 3 children.
She wrote her dissertation on 20th century American history, focusing on the health care reform debate in the US from Theodore Roosevelt’s Progressive Party’s platform all the way to Barack Obama’s health reform agenda.
