The early twentieth century witnessed the dissolution of multiethnic and multilingual empires in Eastern Europe and the Middle East. Incipient nation-states aspired to create homogeneous identities whereby new cultural hierarchies emerged and languages were suppressed in favor of a single national language. Similarly, the construction of a single historical narrative affected the transmission through memory of other histories and identities. In the context of transnationalism, democratization, and identity politics, however, the recent emphasis on other memories and languages is making it possible to reevaluate the role of language politics as well as the relationship between the past and the present.
