  Article:   THE DANUBE AT THE IRON GATES. HISTORIES OF THE ROMANIAN-SERBIAN BORDER IN THE 20TH CENTURY.

  Abstract:  This article discusses four types of historical representations dealing with a specific geographical area, i.e. the Romanian-Serbian border at the Iron Gates gorges on the Danube. According to what was at the stake in relation to the Danube at certain moments, especially in the 19th and 20th centuries, there are international, regional, national and last, but not least, the micro-historical approaches. Most of these pluralistic perspectives about the Danube are however, missing to portray the image of the main object of study: the Danube itself with its people. Thus, the article pleads for micro-historical approaches which would complete and assign to this region the place among the most interesting and relevant borderland communities in Europe.

Keywords: borderland, border, oral history, discourse, narrative, Danube, Romania, Serbia/Yugoslavia.
