Now follows the abstract (cf. Balkan Studies 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8) of Tatjana Marković (Graz/Belgrade): Balkan Studies and Music Historiography. (Self-)Representation between Nationalist Myths and Europeanisation

Balkan Studies in music historiography are mainly determined by conservative understanding that Balkan culture is still of predominantly peasant character. Consequently, presentation of the Balkan music/s is based much more on insight in traditional than in art music, esp. contemporary, or popular music and, as such, it is present in the framework of positivistic ethnomusicological writings, in the first place. Recent musicological contributions to Balkan Studies (meaning studies of Balkan, West Balkan, southeast European music) show a new, growing interest in the field, signified by two main policies: on the one hand, there are writings of the guardians of nationalist myths, who construct the concept of music history in accordance with their frozen (medieval) exclusive image of national identity and, on the other, writings of the pro-European orientated scholars, who stress the Balkans’ close connections to Western Europe. The intermingling and separation of these two approaches, their different ideological and methodological outcomes, as well as possible ways of future research, will be discussed.

Here follows the abstract (cf. Balkan Studies 1, 2, 3, 4) of Maximilian Hartmuth (Istanbul): Image-ing Balkans History: Non-Creative Others, Attention Deficits, and Art as a Problem

There are some fields in the humanities and social sciences, such as Nationalism Studies, in which the Balkans are very present, and others, such as art history and related disciplines, in which they are practically invisible. My paper is to question the impact of this condition on perceptions of the Balkans and Balkan-ness beyond the academia. Are the established interests of Balkan Studies really maintaining the image of the Balkans as an essentially conflictuous, non-creative space?

In addition to the abstracts 1, 2 follows now Rossitsa Gradeva (Sofia): The Ottoman Rule in Bulgarian Historiography

The Ottoman (often equated with Turkish) rule which had lasted for more than five centuries and continued for some parts of the country until the beginning of the 20th century, is a major point of departure in constructing Bulgarian national identity. As such it has been usually subject to a very negative and emotional evaluation in popular writing, fiction, and even in academic publications, one of the most popular terms even today being the notorious 'Turkish yoke'. On the other hand, the Bulgarian ›school‹ in Ottoman studies has produced significant works which are an important reference in many of its fields. Thus the development of Bulgarian historiography of the Ottoman period can be seen as resultant of two major factors – political, inside Bulgaria, and academic, as a constituent of international scholarship, which too can be loaded with political considerations.

 Muslime in SEE 

posted by ush 15 years ago

Religion wird in soziologischer und kulturwissenschaftlicher Hinsicht wieder ein Thema und so etwas wie ein Leitmotiv. Das Tabu-Thema der Multikulturalität wird hier teils wieder aufgenommen; ich denke, durchaus realistischer, distanzierter und weniger polemisch - ob nun in befürwortender oder ablehnder Hinsicht.

Nicht nur konnte ich in Gesprächen mit Kolleginnen feststellen, dass Religion sich in den wissenschaftlichen Fokus drängt (auch bei meinen eigenen Projektideen), sondern es zeigt sich auch in verschiedenen Unternehmungen, Calls und Konferenzen. So auch hier, im Fall der anstehenden Konferenz Islam und Muslime in (Südost)Europa. Kontinuität und Wandel im Kontext von Transformation und EU-Erweiterung am 7. und 8.11.2008, im Magnus-Haus, Am Kupfergraben 7, 10117, Berlin. Organisatoren sind Christian Voß und Jordanka Telbizova-Sack:
