An Ethnological Study of the Crimean Tatars, Roma/Gypsies and Old Believers in Northern and Southern Dobrudzha

Erolova, Yelis (Articol)

“This paper focused on the current situation and development trends within the different ethnic communities of Crimean Tatars, Roma/Gypsies and Russian Old Believers in Romanian and Bulgarian Dobrudzha. Following diaspora concept of Gabriel Sheffer and Rogers Brubaker, this study addresses the question: How those communities, living in two countries, (re)construct their ethnicity and identity, and react to the modern political and socio-economic realities? The ethnic identity is examined by historical-ethnological research methodology in context of ethnic belonging and traditions, socio-economic environment they live in, and the former socialist and modern democratic government’s policy. “
