Is this the right path? : The use of history in odonym changes of Budapest in post-communist Hungary (English)
Abstract [en]

In this qualitative thesis I have studied the process of street-naming in Budapest. I have done this primarily through examining legislative and street name records in Budapest in order to define a distinctive use of history. In an attempt to concretise public opinion, I designed and distributed a succinct questionnaire and used newspaper articles to create a clear view of the political milieu. Furthermore, I have utilised a typological method to summarise the use of history and elucidate the results. I came to the conclusion that a moral and, to some extent, ideological use of history is dominating the street-naming situation in contemporary Budapest. My analysis also showed a discrepancy between decision-makers and citizens regarding the handling of odonyms.

Abstract [sv]

I denna kvalitativa analys har jag undersökt processen kring gatunamnsbyten i Budapest. Främst har jag studerat lagstiftning och gatunamnsregister i Budapest för att finna ett centralt historiebruk. Jag har sekundärt även skapat en mindre enkät och gått igenom ett begränsat antal tidningar för att få fram en folklig opinion i relation till beslutsfattningen. Jag har operationaliserat en beprövad historiebrukstypologi för att kunna konkretisera resultatet. Jag kom fram till slutsatsen att ett moraliskt och, i viss mån, även ett ideologiskt historiebruk dominerar hanteringen av gatunamn i dagens Budapest. Analysen visade också att det råder en diskrepans mellan beslutsfattares och invånares syn på hanteringen av odonymer.
