Research project: The Development of Race Science and Environmentalism in Romania, 1870-1940

The main objective of this research is to explore the interrelationship between the history of science and environmental history, from the perspective of the key figures of Romanian naturalism and alpine associations between 1870 and 1940. It analyses the ways in which the scientific development of nature protection, contributed to the production of Romanian national identity and the maintenance of power relations through scientific institutions, eugenic and racial concepts.
