This chapter also looks at nationalism, but this time from a Romanian point of view. Iosif Vulcan was descended from one of the most prestigious Romanian families in Austria-Hungary. He wrote plays, novels, and poetry; he championed Romanian-language theater; and he edited the journal The Family for nearly forty years. Scholars often view him as a Romanian national activist; this chapter asks what is gained if we see him as a provincial one. An examination of Vulcan's career shows the development of the public sphere (newspapers, books, associations) in the provinces. It also expands the argument (begun in previous chapters) about how nationalism worked on the ground in ethnically and religiously diverse regions.
