Abstract:

"The volume is the result of the interdisciplinary and intercultural research of Transylvania's intellectual and cultural life in the general context of Central and Eastern European and, particularly of Romanian history, during the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century. The research is extended to the preliminary stages of Transylvanian cultural and intellectual history, which prefigured the developments in second half of the 19th century, or to events that took place after the instauration of the communist regime. Its aim is to outline instances of continuity and causality or disruption and conversion in the course of the cultural and intellectual history of Transylvania in the Central East European framework. Furthermore, the contributions are related to the concept of border, a notion of great actuality in a globalized world that is redefining its frontiers in terms of flexibility, mutability and permeability. Thus, there is an emphasis on instances of communication across boundaries, cultural and intellectual transfers (education, trends of ideas, models, etc.), mobility (cultural or/and professional travel, academic pilgrimage or journey, migration, etc.), dialogue, diversity (cultural, educational, ethnical, national, religious, and ideological multiplicity). The authors refer either to concrete borders or to mental, ideological and imaginary, educational, intercultural, inter-religious, interethnic, inter-institutional and international, or identity borders."--
