"Exploring Transylvania by Borbâala Zsuzsanna Tèorèok reconstructs the fissured scholarly landscape in one of the most culturally heterogeneous regions of the Habsburg Monarchy. The author creates an original model of the structure and historical dynamics of an East-Central European province in the republic of letters by tracing the activities of learned societies engaged in the exploration of their fatherland and their connections to national academic centers outside Transylvania. Analyzing the entangled history of the local German, Hungarian, and Romanian scholarly cultures, the book demonstrates how a persisting politics of difference practiced by various political regimes over the long nineteenth century enhanced national hierarchies and endemic tensions both in the Transylvanian intellectual milieus and in scholarship itself"--Provided by publisher.
