Regional, Ethnic, European? Complex Identity Construction of Silesians in the Context of Cultural Borderland
AbstractThis article shows the transformation process of regional and national identities in Silesia in the context of changes induced by the processes of European integration and globalization. The author analyses the reconstruction of the identity of Silesians – a cultural borderland group –at different levels of identification. An important aspect of this analysis is an attempt to answer the question about the attitudes of Silesians, constructing and reconstructing their territorial identity, to various forms of further European integration.
