Building Modern Identities in Transylvania. A Comparative Approach
Exploratory Research Projects - PCE-2011 call
Role in this project:
Universitatea "Babeş-Bolyai" (RO)
This project will analyse how modern identities were constructed in Transylvania in the 18th – 19th centuries. It will thoroughly analyse the way in which Transylvanian communities dialogise, polemise and build a common space for performing identitary discourses. In order to achieve this result, all the components that are involved in Transylvania’s identitary rebuilding will be systematically approached: the zonal identities of the province’s geographical and administrative subcomponents, the social identities of the nobiliary, confessional and urban elites, the confessional identities of the main religious communities, the ethnic solidarities pertaining to the peasant’s traditional mentality. The comparative approach seeks to examine the identitary discourses belonging to the three ethnic communities of modern Transylvania. Furthermore, the complex mechanisms that transform local micro-identities in order to include them in larger constructions (national identities, supranational political loyalties, European symbolic geographies) will be also scrutinised. The project’s team will be led by three senior researchers, specialised in modern history and members of the three main Transylvanian ethnic groups (Sorin Mitu, Judit Pál, Rudolf Gräf) and it will include young researchers who are familiar with Transylvania’s languages, historiographical traditions and multicultural characteristics.
