National Identity of Romanians in Transylvania
Arguing that the study of the emergence of national identity is often solely related to the notion that people discover that they extend over a region, Mitu (history, Babes-Bolyai U., Romania) argues that a proper study would also look at the questions of what people perceive characterizes their national identity. To that end, he looks at the self-perception of the Romanians in Transylvania, as it emerged at the beginning of the modern era. He finds that the emergence of the Romanian national identity during the revolutions of 1821 and 1848 is analogous to the process that the French and American revolutions had on the rise of national identity in their respective societies. Looking at such historical works as Petru Maior's History and Budai-Deleanu's Gypsiad, he explores the common "cliches" in the texts that conditioned the self-perception of identity. c.
