This talk is based on fieldwork data obtained during recent research in Transnistria, a disputed “frozen conflict” region in the former Moldovan SSR governed by the unrecognized Pridnestrovian Moldovan Republic. Special attention will be paid to a museum in the town of Dubossary as a public space for the representation of history and identity construction.
