In-Between Societies: Romanian Urbanites and Their Cultural Demeanour (II)

Publication: Philologica Jassyensia, XIII (1), Section Interculturalia, p. 165

Abstract:This article considers the role of traditional knowledge in the everyday life of Romanian urbanites by focusing on rural reactions and convictions displayed in urban settlements. The method is based on a comparative approach between the native places of subjects and their own actions and beliefs. Post-socialism did not eliminate superstitious reasoning, which continues to exist and even to assimilate modern devices to magic purposes. The article proposes that ethnographic evidence should be made use of in urban cultural studies of South-Eastern countries. The socio-cultural perspective contributes to a better understanding of the modernization dynamics.
Key words:magic beliefs, Romanian urbanites, rural behaviour, traditional knowledge, urban culture
