 Serbian Heritage 

posted by ush 14 years ago
Workshop (February 6, 2010; London): Serbian 'Heritage' as Value, Structure, and Product

The aim of this workshop is to critically address the concept of "heritage" in the case of Serbia and the Serbs. While customarily identified as a value, a given that is inherited (as the very term suggests) and handed down from one generation to the next, a body of literature emerged in the 1980s – authored by, inter alia, scholars like Pierre Nora, Eric Hobsbawm, David Lowenthal, or Svetlana Boym – which insists on the factor of agency by which objects, events, or thoughts from the past are made relevant to/in the present. Heritage, history, tradition, or identity, it is now claimed, are not "just there".

 Balkan Studies 3 

posted by ush 15 years ago

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.

 Cold War 

posted by Katalin Teller 15 years ago

The 20th anniversary of the collapse of the Berlin Wall provides us with an ideal opportunity to look back at the Cold War era and reassess it from a modern day perspective. Two decades after the Cold War was said to have ended, the concept of a Cold War has once again reappeared in the rhetoric of world politics. Therefore, one cannot argue that the Cold War was merely a process of the past with minor relevance to the present. The 9th Aleksanteri Conference Cold War Interactions Reconsidered, will be hosted by the Aleksanteri Institute and will take place at the University of Helsinki on 29-31 October, 2009. There are only a several days left to submit papers: the deadline is March 15, 2009.

 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:

 Balkan Peninsula 

posted by ush 15 years ago

The following program of a roundtable to be held in Sofia is thematically linked to the topics discussed in the Digital Anthology Forbidden Words, turning towards the contamination and geopolitical implications of the term Balkanhalbinsel. The history of the term, its usages and misusages are discussed in connection with the historical and current (mis)usage of another geographical term, "Europe". Therefore, it the latter term should be analysed and revisited, as well, since it is not evident, why Non-Europe is meant to be insulting.

The Department for History of Byzantium and the Balkans at Faculty of History in University of Sofia "St. Kliment Ohridski" is prepraring a R o u n d T a b l e  with the following title and agenda: Two Hundred Years on the Road: The Term "Balkan Peninsula" (1808-2008).
