Absztrakt: Encouraged by economic, social, historical, as well as ideological factors, the sociological research of villages flourished in Hungary in the 1930s. Debrecen’s earlier involvement in the movement had been rather superficial and was restricted primarily to folk literature as it appeared in historical works. The present essay offers a survey of the appearance in the scene of village research with a sociological angle by demonstrating the fermenting effects of folk literature’s institutions (Ady Társaság), programs (Debreceni Diéták) and interim successes (Márciusi Front) in Debrecen. The survey lays particular emphasis on the sociographical activities of the university attendees’ organi- zations, fellowships, and the endeavors of two academic workshops: the Institute of Geography and the coterie of linguists). The aim of this study is to provide additional data to the characteristics, differences and coherences of these workshops, also attempting to picture the diversity and complexity of a nationwide involvement in exploring village communities against the background of political, ideological and scientific priorities in the era.

Absztrakt: This survey focuses on a selected aspect of the history of a peculiar and in many respects unique initiative: the pre-World War One British and American ties of the Debrecen International Summer School, which was established in 1927. In doing so, the study firstly identifies by name those British and American guests who can be documented as having attended the Summer School as officially enrolled students; secondly, it follows up and evaluates those aspects of the teaching program which had a British or American relevance; and, in the third place, it supplies examples for how the International Summer School advertised itself in the English-speaking countries. The survey is concluded by an analysis of selected contemporaneous views formulated by the representatives of the university and of the Summer School with reference to the past and (then) presence of British/American and Hungarian ties.

Absztrakt: László Vajthó’s Links with the University of Debrecen. A literary historian known for his text editions and teacher of Dániel Berzsenyi Secondary Grammar School in Budapest, László Vajthó received habilitation for Privat-docent in 1935 at the Faculty of Arts of Debrecen’s István Tisza University and subsequently he obtained full professorship in 1944. In 1942, following the retirement of literary professor Károly Papp, it was L. Vajthó who was expected to occupy the vacant chair. However, somebody else was nominated for the position, and when the chair fell vacant again in 1945, he was repeatedly by-passed. Relying partly on Vajthó’s recollections at old age and partly on the correspondence between László Vajthó, literary historian Ferenc Zsigmond, and Margit Kis, a teacher of Nyíregyháza and a muse to both, the study highlights László Vajthó’s connection with the University of Debrecen.

Absztrakt: As it is well known, due to the continuously decreasing trend of the alternative energy technologies and the costs of the traditional fossil fuels increase, the development of resident or commercial buildings with greatly reduced energy needs becomes a high ranked and more pressing scientific challenge. In topic with this technological and scientific provocation, the paper presents a LabView software-based building supervising and events monitor system designed and developed with the basic purpose to serve as support for net zero-energy control strategies implementation in intelligent buildings. There after a briefly presentation of the adopted intelligent building development strategy, the net zero-energy concept is presented and discussed. Once these theoretical aspects have been expressed and clarified, a multi-layer type implementation is unfolded, where the background layer it is a building supervising and events monitor system. The main software development steps of this system are detailed presented to prove the feasibility and reliability of the adopted implementation strategy.
