Project 3

The Romanian historical imaginary

The third ROMIMAG project leans on the Romanian Historian Imaginary. More than the other collective representations, the historical imaginary arises from the encounter of imagination with human action, political, social or cultural. For this reason, it can be considered a central subject, and its investigation, mapping, understanding and explanation of the mechanisms that govern it, in time and space, is a mandatory task of the Romanian scientific research in the humanist field. The research team will provide an in-depth review and synthesis of the main representations of our history, from the myth of origins and the theme of national identity to symbolic geographies, landscaping imagery, racial imagery, concurrent religious denominations, etc.
