THE ROLE OF THE NEWSPAPER PAREKORDZAGANI TZAIN AND ITS RELATED INSTITUTIONS IN THE PRESERVATION OF LANGUAGE AND IDENTITY IN THE ARMENIAN COMMUNITY OF PLOVDIV
Giustina Selvelli, 2018, original scientific article

Abstract: This paper describes the linguistic and identitary challenges faced by the members of the Armenian diaspora of Plovdiv, Bulgaria, in relation to what can be viewed as an irreducible multicultural context. Through the consideration of the community’s main cultural institutions embodied by the AGBU organization, the related press organ Parekordzagani Tzain and publishing house Armen Tur, I highlight the Armenian diaspora’s ability of combining different resources from a transnational perspective, while keeping alive a fixed sense of collective identity. In such process, I show how language reveals itself as the main chore of the community’s value systems, embracing different domains of the diaspora social and cultural life.

IDENTITY AND MULTIPLICITY IN CANETTI'S AND WAGENSTEIN'S BIRTHPLACES : EXPLORING THE RHIZOMATIC ROOTS OF EUROPE
Giustina Selvelli, 2017, original scientific article

Abstract: The aim of this article is to present some commonalities between the works of two writers who share the same Bulgarian and Jewish origin: Elias Canetti (1905–1994) and Angel Wagenstein (1922–). Both writers can be considered as highly multicultural personalities: they both came from Sephardic Jewish backgrounds, and were influenced and fascinated by different cultural worlds such as the Bulgarian one, the Jewish one, the Central- European one, and even more. This paper will explore the contribution of their birthplaces, respectively, Rustschuk (today, Ruse) and Plovdiv, to the development of what I will define as a particular kind of sensibility for multiplicity which was central to their subsequent cultural and social undertakings.

ALPHABET AND WRITING IN THE ARMENIAN DIASPORA OF PLOVDIV: ANTHROPOLOGICAL AND SOCIOLINGUISTIC PERSPECTIVES
Giustina Selvelli, 2015, original scientific article

Abstract: This work investigates the relation between the maintenance of Armenian identity and language and the multifunctional employment of the Armenian writing system in the diasporic context of Plovdiv, Bulgaria. Departing from the assumption that a writing system’s cultural meaning goes far beyond its technical function, the aim is to demonstrate how the Armenian alphabet becomes a fundamental component of a process of symbolic cultivation of collective imagery, employed by the local intelligentsia in different writing settings in order to keep the link with the cultural and spiritual legacy of the historic Armenian motherland alive. In this vision, I integrate the analysis of ethnic identity with the study of the representational factors that allow a group to exist in the symbolic horizon of its members, with the purpose of underlining the symbolic aspect of ethnicity and identifying the mechanisms active in its persistence in time as a historic and cultural construction.

LA FRATELLANZA ARMENO-BULGARA: UNA QUESTIONE DI MERA RETORICA?
Giustina Selvelli, 2011, original scientific article

Abstract: Tema di questo intervento è l’amicizia fra Bulgari e Armeni e il discorso su di essa quale è venuto sviluppandosi negli argomenti prodotti dai due popoli e radicati nella loro lunga storia di vicinanza e di convivenza. La vicinanza si fonda principalmente su tre fatti storici: un’in- venzione alfabetica alle origini di entrambe le tradizioni letterarie, i contatti dei Bulgari con il paulicianesimo, l’insediamento dei profughi armeni in Bulgaria – insediamento così stabile da divenire parte integrante dei processi di autorappresentazione nazionale bulgari e da lasciare traccia, fra l’altro, nel poemetto Armenci di Pejo Javorov. Le informazioni utilizzate in questo lavoro sono state ricavate da un’esperienza di ricerca condotta sul campo fra gli Armeni di Plov- div, oltre che dalla disanima del volume Bălgari i Armenci zaedno prez vekovete e dallo spoglio di articoli a stampa in lingua bulgara pubblicati sui giornali della minoranza armena di Plovdiv.
