With a few weeks' delay, the December issue of spacesofidentity.net is online now. After going "beyond" Central Europe in the summer issue, which dealt with "the other East" on occasion of the Beijing Olympics, this issue returns to the multiple layers of identity formation processes in Central Europe.

 Thoughts on some implications of an independent Kosovo  

posted by Augustin Nicolescou 9 years ago

On February 17th 2008 Kosovo declared its unilateral independence, with significant support from Western powers. Many see it as the closing act which completes the process of Yugoslavia’s disintegration. Yet there are significant differences between Kosovo gaining independence and the other states which emerged from the breakdown of the Yugoslav federation. The independence of Kosovo will not be recognized by the UN Security Council, and there remain many unanswered questions. Leaving Russia aside, even the EU members are not united on this key issue. Spain, Slovakia, Romania, Bulgaria, Cyprus and Greece are set against recognizing the sovereignty and independence of Kosovo as a state. Whatever happens next, it will be controversial and antagonistic. Is this really the best the West could do?

Svjetlan Lacko Vidulić aus Zagreb konnte gleich zwei Artikel zum Großthema "Ex-Jugoslawien" posten. Der eine nimmt Peter Handkes sog. "Befriedungsschriften" und ihre Rezeption v.a. in Kroatien kritisch in den Blick, der andere wendet sich Dubravka Ugrešićs Schriften zu.

Aus verschiedenen Gründen habe ich David Albaharis Mutterland mit allergrößtem Interesse gelesen. Abgesehen davon, dass es mir ein Anliegen ist, die Literatur in deutscher oder englischer Sprache bzw. Übersetzung aus dem ehemaligen Jugoslawien kennen zu lernen, war für mich die konzeptuelle Rolle Kanadas, speziell: Calgarys wichtig.

Letzte Woche verbrachte ich in der Wüste am toten Meer. Anlass war eine Einladung zum 28th GIF Meeting. Thema der deutsch-israelischen Konferenz war sinnigerweise "Religion – Science – Politics". Die Vorträge erstreckten sich von Bioethik über jüdische, islamische und christliche Religionspolitik im Vergleich bis zu allgemein philosophisch/ethisch relevanten Themen zu Beiträgen oder Verhinderungen von Toleranz und Civil Society durch Religion und Religiosität.

Some topics - such as migration and identity - have a revival within the discourses of culture and new Europe. One of the more promising and inventive projects is the conference Migration and Literature in Contemporary Europe to be held in Copenhagen, November 8-10, 2007:

It still seems to be impossible, to travel to the Balkans without traveling back through time and not only forward through space.

Georg Seeßlen's article Der zärtliche Blick der Maschine is re-drawing the history of dynamic cinema. Dziga Vertov created this special dynamic, affectionate cinematic glance with his film Der Mann mit Kamera (1929).

Interesting, and still it bears the character of a riddle: When a vast space enters a small place from the outside, Quixotes are born. Thus, Quixote is a kind of an imploding space.

Paul Ricœur's The Self as an Other was relevant for my PhD examination, about 3 weeks ago. When I read it again, I felt a spontaneous antipathy for his construction of certain binding meta-speech acts, constituing the continuity of the Self. "A lot has changed, but I will keep my word."

Eigentlich müsste das Folgende unter einem Punkt "Erinnerung | Memory", wie ihn der Editor-Blog hat, abgehandelt werden. Da es um die Verortung und die Dislozierung von Gedächtnis geht, also um durchaus konkret räumliches Denken, sind auch Spaces of Identity berührt.

Spaces of Identity usually are no big deal, as long as one is living and acting within a familiar and emphatic (cultural) space. Identity becomes a forged space, yet, when different cultural spaces start to overlap and interact.

Die eine Konferenz über Medienkonfigurationen um 1900 // 2000 ging zu Ende, die andere des Projektes Verbotene Worte begann gestern nachmittag. SchriftstellerInnen und Kulturschaffende sowie -wissenschaftlerInnen diskutieren, assoziieren und hintertreiben in Doppelperformances diverse Spaces of Identity aus Literatur/en und Lebensrealität/en.

Wer in Budapest ist und Zeit hat, sollte sich die heute noch andauernde Veranstaltung im Goethe-Institut nicht entgehen lassen!

It still comes back to the question of language, albeit language is only one of a whole bunch of communicative means stretching from rituals and habits to the language of body and to body space (how much space has to be between bodies?).

Natalia Shostak hat über Jahre hinweg Interviews mit ukrainischen Migrantinnen geführt. Sie fokussierte dabei auf die Herausbildung von genderspezifischen Sender- und Empfängernetzwerken und auf die dreifache Art, sich in diesen zu bewegen: Sie aufzubauen und zu benutzen, ihren Sinn für sich zu entdecken und sich (verwandelnd) anzueignen sowie sie nach der Rückkehr in die Heimat in der Erzählung zu vergegenwärtigen und erneut zu bewerten.

Language has seemingly been one of the most powerful instruments of building and expressing one's identity. This is so in the case of teenage sociolect, and it is the case with professional language, and with socially and/or ethnically differentiated slang, as well - variations within a theoretically common language.

I use the topic that originally was simply meant to announce the issues of the online journal "Spaces of Identity" to post some reflections on 'identity', 'nationality/-ism' and similar subjects.
