"Where there is a Hungarian woman there is anger; where there is a German woman there is falseness; where there is a Gipsy woman there is theft…": Creating Stereotypes of "Others" in Slovak Travel and Ethnographic Literature of the 19th Century

Molda, Rastislav

The aim of the study is the analysis of the stereotypes of Hungarians, Jews, Germans and Romanies that are portrayed in the Slovak literature of the 19th century. The primary sources of the text analysis are travel and ethnographic works published as separate titles as well as the articles issued in the periodical press. Some of the mentioned literary pieces were due to limited publishing and financial possibilities published only in student's manuscript magazines and humorous magazines.
