The new issue of an online magazine has just been introduced by the Erste Bank Group. It is called "Report", and is a magazine of Kontakt, the Arts and Civil Society Program of Erste Bank Group, aiming to provide information about art, human sciences and social affairs in Central and Eastern Europe....
Their first issue (download here) focuses on Women in East and West (btw, I love the cover by Sanja Ivekovic....
The articles featured in 'Report' might be useful as an inspiration for anybody considering to participate at the CfP posted yesterday (though there is nothing specific about Albania in the magazine)...

Maybe old news by now, but here's an update to the last posting about the Eurovision Song Contest. Apart from other bloggers' reactions to the event (btw, 'Balkanvision' seems to be on the way of becoming a dubiously acceptable second name for the Song Contest....), calls for a reform of the voting system have been made (e.g. by the Daily Telegraph)
- and there are finally prominent voices commenting other, more interesting aspects of the event. Happy about the results for reasons not mentioned so far is Germaine Greer in yesterday's Guardian, under the title Watch Eurovision? Only when the triumph of a lesbian Gypsy sweeps away the dross.

While watching the Eurovision Song Contest on BBC last Saturday (yes I know, my life sounds sad, but it is just a temporary inability to move), I couldn't help but notice that the commentator was getting increasingly distressed about

a) nobody voting for the UK and
b) the - in his words - "Balkan"-voting.

Österreich heißt die neuen EU-Mitglieder mit einem Chor alter Vorurteile willkommen - zu diesem Standard-Artikel spare ich mir hier jedes Kommentar. Es sei nur darauf hingewiesen, dass so etwas mir bestätigt, dass das Grundthema dieses Blogs noch lange nicht obsolet ist....ein Frohes Neues, dann.

Just in case somebody was wondering if the British press ever wrote something nice or at least okay about Albanians:

Yes they do, sometimes. Only recently, Time Out London has published this article on Brikena Muharemi, a successful barrister from Kosovo. Including some tips how and where to find the Albanian community - restaurants, cafés, writers and music clubs.....

I had been planning to blog about the role of British media in depicting the image of Albanians for quite a while, and AA Gill has now finally caused me to look into that topic again.

His article is by far not an isolated phenomenon; there are various examples for Albania(ns)-bashing in the British media. Dr. Gëzim Alpion (University of Birmingham) has done some research on that:

The case of AA Gill

This is somehow a long story, and yet not really, and I do not really know where to start or whether to write it in English or German, so probably I’ll mix the two (sorry for that.)

Christmas in the Balkans

Eine letzte Abrechnung mit Weihnachten – wer es nicht mehr hören kann, möge mir verzeihen, wir haben drei Tage an diesem Ding herumgebaut und es scheint ungeahnte Aggressionen freizusetzen. Ich verspreche aber, ab jetzt lasse ich Weihnachten wieder in Ruhe – es ist eh vorbei....

Was ich noch loswerden wollte, waren ein paar Überlegungen zu Weihnachten und “dem Balkan”, insbesondere dem Kosovo.

Beim Nachdenken über den Workshop in Budapest ist mir ein etwas älterer Artikel wieder eingefallen, dessen paradoxer Titel ”Zettel mit Antworten auf ungelöste Fragen” im Gedächtnis verblieben ist. Eine andere Art von Zettelkasten entsteht demnach für Bajram Kosumi in Prishtina, wie der Standard vorweihnachts- und spendengerecht berichtete – inklusive Fotos im Müll wühlender Kindern und des Zauns des Regierungsgebäudes mit Bildern Vermisster.

Another kakanien-weblog has gone online – SEE-EU, a ... forum for discussion on the political and social processes linked to EU integration in the Western Balkans. I have been looking forward to this weblog (and other weblogs which are still to come), also because the political and social topics discussed there are closely related to my own interests in this weblog...
