 Brief description of your activity focus
The cultural-historical heritage and the problems of identity are a subject of research by the Division within the Humanities research units of BAS

 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
The research division performs research in field of the cultural-historical heritage and national identity,
which is carried out and coordinated by the research establishments in the Humanities in the BAS,
include the following spheres:
– Research on the Cultural-Historical Heritage in Today’s Bulgarian Lands and Making this Heritage Popular
– Matters Related to National Identity
– Processes of Transformation and Integration. Dialogue between and Integration of Cultures
– Theory, Methodology and Problems of Terminology and Concepts
– Application of Information Technologies, Electronic Publications and Digitalization of Information
Files on the Cultural and Scientific Heritage

In the first place this means acquiring new knowledge and explanding existing knowledge on the material
and non-material cultural heritage, the language, history, folklore, the Arts, the architecture of the
Bulgarian people as well as on the tribes and peoples that inhabited today’s Bulgarian lands from
Antiquity to the present. This includes the history and culture of Ancient Thrace and the Thracians
studied within the framework of Palaeobalkanic and Indo-European Studies and the heritage of Antiquity,
which was incorporated into the culture of Byzantium and Medieval Bulgaria as well as into the taditional
culture of the Balkans. Medievalists from different research establishments in close cooperation carry
out research on the Middle Ages, when the Bulgarian state was formed and consolidated, Bulgaria’s
joining the Christian civilization, the oeuvre of Cyril and Methodius and the importance of the Cyrillo-
Methodian sources and traditions in the Slavic, Greek and Latin literary heritage, the development of the
Bulgarian language, literature, arts, etc. The same is valid to a large extent also with regard to the
studies of the period of the Bulgarian National Revival and of the traditional culture of the people and of
folklore. The new times, modernity and the contemporary public and cultural development are the
object of detailed study as stages in accepting and assimilating what has been inherited and in creating
new works in all fields of culture and the Arts. This wide range of activities covers fundamental and more
general subjects and also more specific themes. Bulgarian history and culture are discussed as a specific
part of the cultural and civilization space of the Balkans and of Europe as a whole. Bulgarian Studies hold
a place of importance. They are supplemented with comparative and contrastive investigations.
In the second place the studies of the cultural-historical heritage presuppose efforts to understand and
interpret this heritage in a new way. Knowledge in the Humanities has a particular feature – it can
accumulate, and it can be interpreted and used in different ways and thus participate in the dynamic
emergence of a picture of the world for the benefit of the separate individual, his or her immediate
milieu and the community at large. In this sense the Humanities work with material that does not “get
out of date”, that cannot be understood once and for all, but can always be included into a new
context with different meanings and functions.
