9789004300170: Latin at the Crossroads of Identity: The Evolution of Linguistic Nationalism in the Kingdom of Hungary (Central and Eastern Europe)

From the late 18th century in the multi-ethnic Kingdom of Hungary, new language-based national identities came to dominate over those that had previously been constructed on legal, territorial, or historical basis. While the Hungarian language struggled to emancipate itself, the roles and functions of Latin (the official language until 1844) were changing dramatically. Latin held a different significance for varying segments of society, from being the essential part of an individual identity to representing an obstacle to "national survival"; from guaranteeing harmony between the different linguistic communities to hindering change, social and political justice. This pioneering volume aims to highlight the ways language debates about Latin and Hungarian contributed to the creation of new identities and ideologies in Central Europe. Contributors include Gabor Almasi, Per Pippin Aspaas, Piroska Balogh, Henrik Honich, Laszlo Kontler, Istvan Margocsy, Alexander Maxwell, Ambrus Miskolczy, Levente Nagy, Nenad Ristovic, Andrea Seidler, Teodora Shek Brnardic, Zvjezdana Sikiric Assouline, and Lav Subaric

Review:

"Latin at the Crossroads of Identity is highly recommendable and is a valuable volume not only for linguists, as some may deduce from just the name of the ancient Roman language in its title, but also for historians, sociologists, and a wider audience interested in topics related to Central Europe and all-European culture [...] a volume that thoroughly explores the complex and dynamic relation between language and national identity within the Hungarian Kingdom of the turn of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries." Ferdinand Siarl in Hungarian Cultural Studies. e-Journal of the American Hungarian Educators Association
