"Discourses of Collective Identity in Central and Southeast Europe 1770-1945"

This series of four books, published by the Central European University Press, is the outcome of a long-term project carried out by a group of scholars at the Centre for Advanced Study Sofia.
The series contains the most important texts that shaped the processes of nation-building in Central and Southeast Europe. The series aims to integrate the history of these cultures with that of general European civilization. Thus it counteracts the habit whereby European intellectual phenomena and historical movements are generally analyzed where they originated and experienced their earliest and most intensive development while the peculiar manifestations of these currents in the 'Other Europe' are neglected.

The structure of the book and its inherent comparative perspective endeavors to go beyond individual national histories and offer a regionally sensitive framework of interpretation. The pieces range from poems to essays, from (extracts of) academic treatises to letters. Each excerpt is accompanied by a presentation of the author, and by an analysis of the context in which the respective text was born.

Welcome to the [Sofia] weblog, a part of the Kakanien Revisited weblog network. The Team - Dimiter, Assen and Mira - all three PhD students in the Department of History and Theory of Culture at the Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski" will try to create an image - although sometimes a faceted and incoherent one - of the Bulgarian academia, culture, ongoing events, ideas, realities and virtual spaces. All of you - our readers - are warmheartedly invited to join us in this endeavor with your comments and suggestions.
