New Scales for Regional Studies in Creolizing the Modern: Transylvania across Empires
Abstract: This review article tries to formulate some general remarks about the most innovative elements of Creolizing the Modern: Transylvania across Empires, published by Anca Parvulescu and Manuela Boatcă in 2022 at Cornell University Press, findings that most probably will open up for future research new directions in conceptualizing Transylvanian identities. It also tries to identify some of the problematic aspects of the overview offered by the volume. ‘Worlding’ Transylvania is a double-edged strategy that may edit out nuances that could be important for local communities.
Keywords: inter-imperiality, Transylvania, Romanian literature, Hungarian literature, modernism.
