LIDA COPE - ROBERT DITTMANN - EVA ECKERT

Join us on Saturday, February 18, 2023, at 10:00AM for a presentation and discussion on Zoom


From Czechs in the World to Czechs in Texas:
Community History, Language, and Identity

The presenters will review the historical waves of Czech emigration around the world and focus on the language and culture in the historically Czech communities in the US, with the case in point being Texas, one of the long-lasting strongholds of Czech life in the New World. They will share new publications and collaborative research initiatives including the fascinating 19th century inter-continental communication of two brothers and the Texas Czech Legacy Project.
