Celebrating the Day of Roses (St. Cyril and St. Methodius National Library, Inv. N.: C IV 583, Photographer: Dimitar Anastasov Karastoyanov)

Research is characterized by diverse approaches. One of the main approaches is Historical Anthropology. Historical Anthropology understood as extension of social historical approaches toward history, which deals for instance with fundamental experiences of and their interpretations by manhood in history, has been moving from the fringes to the core of historical sciences. Historical-anthropological research at the Centre had been concentrated on family research at its very beginning in the early 1990s. This was the point of departure for diversified approaches, although related to family, only to mention historical-cultural comparison and transfer, migration, social security, demography, nationalism and the progressively inclusion of visual studies and the Near East. Despite these divergences, family, patriarchal social structures, gender and visual cultures remain core questions.
