Nationalism and Neo-Vernacularism, 1800-1900


Nationalism and Neo-Vernacularism, 1800-1900


This map presents the development of ethnic nationalism as a result of the expansion of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the Ottoman Empire and “westernization”” in Eastern Europe in the late 19th and early 20th Century. On this map, the strength of ethnic and cultural resilience is illustrated by the multitude of languages dominantly used in different regions, not necessarily bound to borderlines, as well as the development and maintenance of folk art and customs. .
