Professor Robert Hayden will have a lecture in Sofia on Imagining “Tolerance” in Bosnia since 1990 that will take place on 14 April 2006 (Friday), 17.00 h at the Boris Christoff Centre, 43 Tsar Samuil Str.
In 1990-91, there was general acceptance internationally of the idea that Yugoslavia was an “unnatural” state of incompatible peoples: Serbs, Croats, Muslims and others. Yet there was also international acceptance of the idea that Bosnia was a natural community of the same peoples, who supposedly had a “tradition of tolerance.” This lecture explores the nature of “tolerance” between self-identifying peoples who have long lived intermingled but who have long been in competition with each other for dominance; and of the imagination of “tolerance” as an element in the imagination of a putative community when a large percentage of the population rejects inclusion in a newly defined state.



Welcome to the [Sofia] weblog, a part of the Kakanien Revisited weblog network. The Team - Dimiter, Assen and Mira - all three PhD students in the Department of History and Theory of Culture at the Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski" will try to create an image - although sometimes a faceted and incoherent one - of the Bulgarian academia, culture, ongoing events, ideas, realities and virtual spaces. All of you - our readers - are warmheartedly invited to join us in this endeavor with your comments and suggestions.
