Success of the virtual launch for Dr. Daniela Moisa's recent publication
On Thursday, October 22nd, 2020, at noon, the University of Sudbury proudly held a virtual launch for the recent publication by Dr. Daniela Moisa, “La maison de la réussite. Dynamiques spatiales et mobilités socioéconomiques au village de Certeze, Roumanie”, which is part of the “Patrimoine en mouvement” (Heritage in motion) collection with "Presses de l’Université Laval".
A number of guests tuned in to celebrate this book that was published in June, 2020 and that was a result of Dr. Moisa’s defended doctoral thesis. The publication takes a look at Certeze, a prestigious village in the outskirts of Romania, also known as “Little Paris” or “Little Dallas”. In a nutshell, it discusses its inhabitants, always going back-and-forth between their homes and workplaces located at the four corners of the world, and the rivalry amongst themselves as they hope to build the house of their dreams, inspired by the different countries in which they’ve lived. It discusses their quests for perfecting or redefining themselves, as well as mobility, the geo-economic redefinition of societies, migration and much more.
