“We” – Discourses and Local Entanglements in Transylvania at the Beginning of the 20th Century02.24.

Held by Enikő Dácz (Munich) February 25 (Wednesday), C 426, 15:30 Starting from interdisciplinary research approaches to Transylvanian identity and alterity constructions before World War I the presentation will focus on German, Hungarian, and Romanian “we” discourses at local levels. The main focus lies on the simultaneous presence of different, often contradictory interpretative models, on the performative structure of identity, and on (self-)ethnification processes. Based on media and archival sources the presentation tries to answer the question, how singular occurrences of everyday life were transformed into identity conceptions. In a last step a short outlook on the changes after the Great War is to be given. Enikő Dácz graduated in German and English philology at the Babeş-Bolyai University (Cluj / Kolozsvár, Romania) and after several research periods in Germany and Austria defended her PhD in 2009 at the University of Szeged (Hungary). After gaining her second Master in Central European Studies at the Andrássy University Budapest she was a research assistant at the same institution until December 2013. Since January 2014 she is working as a researcher at the Institute for German Culture and History in Southeast Europe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich.
