Citizenship, Gender, and the Everyday in Romania since 1945: Work and Care PDF Print E-mail

Maria Bucur-Deckard, Indiana University


This project has as its point of departure a basic question: what does 'citizenship' mean in everyday life? Is there evidence of how politics is part of routine behavior and banal choices one makes along any average day? And since everyday life is fundamentally gendered—our behavior, the choices we make and their meaning are part of the larger socio-cultural web of gender norms and relations—how is then everyday citizenship gendered? How have the lives of average persons changed (or not) significantly since the end of World War II?
