Abstract : Despite the drastically diminished size of the centuries-old German-speaking minority of Transylvania since 1989, German-language schools thrive as they attract an increasing number of students originating from the ethnic Romanian majority population. A participatory photography project explored how these young multilingual Transylvanians position themselves in relation to the German-Saxon heritage in their social and physical environment. An important aim was to trace any shifts in ethnic self-identification, and to assess the actual importance of ethnic categories as opposed to socio-economic considerations. The project also explored ways in which a Photovoice approach is useful combined with other, non-visual methods.
