American sociology researcher Samuel Osborne visited the Taraclia Cultural Heritage Museum. He has been working for about two years on a Fulbright project in Chisinau, Moldova, entitled "The Language of Independence: The Impact of Linguistic Identity on Romanian Nationalism in Moldova." The result of the research work of the project will be published in the academic year 2022-2023.
"The aim of the research is to find out whether the mother tongue is the most influential factor affecting the national identity of citizens living on the territory of multinational Moldova or whether there are other factors of influence," the guest from the United States told BTA.
The museum's director, Tatiana Nekit, accompanied the scientist during his visit to the museum, where he met with students and teachers from the educational institutions in Taraclia and the Deputy Chair of the Regional Council, Alexandr Borimecicov.
The sociologist wrote in the museum's wish book that he was delighted with the Heritage Museum in Taraclia and promised that he would return, together with his friends.
The meeting with the young people continued in the hall of the Stepan Tanov House of Culture, where Osborne talked about his work. His programme also included a meeting with the Mayor of Taraclia, Veaceslav Lupov.
