(Dis-)entangling traditions on the Central Balkans: Performance and perception (TraCeBa)

TraCeBa - a three-year project (July 2018 – July 2021) within the ERA.Net RUS Plus sub-programme of the FP7/Horizon 2020 programme.

The project explores converging and diverging tendencies in linguistic and cultural practices in the Central Balkans. The focus is on the Torlak region, which represented a linguistic and cultural unit until 1878, but which since the end of the 19th century has been divided by the Serbian-Bulgarian political boundary.

Specifically, the project investigates the role of boundaries – geographical, political, perceptual – on the transformation of linguistic and cultural traditions and their perception by the individual subjects. The investigation has an empirical basis, combining linguistic methods with language technology.
