The research group aims to investigate aspects related to the history of the Romanian Principalities and Southeast Europe in the XVII–XX centuries, a period marked by profound changes in the political geography of the region, but also in its socio-economic situation. In taking into account the individual interest of its members in institutions and commercial practices, aspects related to private life or consumption, political organization or women’s history, the group will identify and study some of the specific forms modernity has taken in South-Eastern Europe, as well as the routes and networks through which it has penetrated into the region.
