Changing Szeklerland

The first paper serves as a theoretical and social introduction to the thematic block on Szeklerland. During the last decades Szeklerland became the authentic territorial representation for the “real” Hungarian ethnicity, on the other hand became the scene of symbolical conflicts in the Hungarian–Romanian relations. Although Szeklerland's borderland-character was evident already in the period of historical Hungary, it is forming – through the cultural differences – the region's identity as well. The articles are shading these processes in different case studies.
