EURESIS / 2010

The current volume brings together a number of papers that were initially presented at the Conference, organised between the 23rd to the 25th of November 2006, by the “Tudor Vianu” Interdisciplinary Centre of European and Romanian Cultural Studies – an academic research unit of the University of Bucharest.
The papers have been structured into four sections: the first one is dedicated to the keynote speakers′ interventions, whereas the second one contains the way in which a number of important authors conceived legitimacy. The third section deals with the forms and ways in which legitimacy manifests itself within the area of culture – which includes the relationships legitimacy entertains with authority, canonicity, validity, authenticity etc. The final one focuses on instances of legitimisation in Romanian culture.
