ibidem Press

The new biannual, peer-reviewed Journal of Romanian Studies, jointly developed by The Society for Romanian Studies and ibidem Press, examines critical issues in Romanian studies, linking work in that field to wider theoretical debates and issues of current relevance, and serving as a forum for junior and senior scholars. The journal also presents articles that connect Romania and Moldova comparatively with other states and their ethnic majorities and minorities, and with other groups by investigating the challenges of migration and globalization and the impact of the European Union.

Issue No. 2 contains:

Lucian Leuștean: Romania, the Paris Peace Conference and the Protection System of “Race, Language and Religion” Minorities: A Reassessment
Gavin Bowd: Between France and Romania, Between Science and Propaganda. Emmanuel de Martonne in 1919
Doina Anca Cretu: Humanitarian Aid in the “Bulwark of Bolshevism:” The American Relief Administration and the Quest for Sovereignty in Post-World War I Romania
