Romanian Studies around the World


Romanian studies scholarship frequently involves research done by Romanian academic immigrants in various universities around the world, pursuing the multiple threads interlocked with their national background. The legacy of Romanian civilization enhances their academic experience, developing original hyphenated approaches to culture that carry the native specificity into various scholarly fields, be they literary, language studies or intercultural communication. In the last thirty years, however, there hasn’t been enough academic focus on the Romanian-American or American-Romanian connection, for instance, which is a field that deserves further input from researchers on both sides of the Atlantic. Recently though, there emerged a Romanian Studies Centre at Lund University in Sweden, where dedicated Romanian scholars issue a journal that encompasses research by Romanian academics with a passion for their own cultural roots. From these and other initiatives, Romanian cultural studies may hope to receive an academic boost and also become better represented in universities at home. Following the scholarly example of the Romanian Studies Association of America and that of the Romanian Studies Center in Lund, we also welcome to the next issue of our journal research about Romanian language and literature, translations studies, visual and performing arts, cultural studies, anthropology, education as well as reviews of works within these fields. The articles should focus on case studies as well as on theoretical issues or around methodological debates in emerging or developing fields, and may be on topics such as:

Romanian language studies (phonetics and phonology, linguistics, pragmatics etc.)

Translation studies (from Romanian into other languages and vice versa)

Romanian-American cultural connections

American-Romanian cultural relations

Film studies: the influence of Hollywood and the European cinema on the Romanian movie industry

Music studies: the influence of jazz, rock and pop music on Romanian composers and performers

Reception Studies (of American culture in Romania or Romanian culture in America)


Please note that the above topics are not exclusive and any contributions on the proposed theme are warmly welcomed. Likewise, the journal section titled Miscellaneous may include papers that are not related to the present theme and we also have a Reviews section, for recent titles of relevance.
