Research project: Folk Culture and Natural Heritage in Interwar Romania

The project is an analysis of the way ideas about the cultural and natural heritage of Romania developed after 1918, when Transylvania, Bukovina and Bessarabia became part of Romania. It will focus on (1) the promotion of folk material heritage as nationally significant, especially in the newly acquired regions where the folk was associated with the Romanian ethnicity; and (2) the promotion of the Carpathian range with the emergence of tourist guides, hiking clubs, trails and mountain shelters.
