Balkan Legacies: The Long Shadow of Conflict and Ideological Experiment in Southeastern Europe

on Monday July 5, 2021 at 2PM CET

Balkan Legacies is a study of the aftermath of war and state socialism in the contemporary Balkans. The authors look at the inescapable inheritances of the recent past and those that the present has to deal with. The book’s key theme is the interaction, often subliminal, of the experiences of war and socialism in contemporary society in the region. Fifteen contributors approach this topic from a range of disciplinary backgrounds and through a variety of interpretive lenses, collectively drawing a composite picture of the most enduring legacies of conflict and ideological transition in the region, without neglecting national and local peculiarities. The publication also includes the paper of our professor Mišo Dokmanović – The Unexpected Twist: The Historical Legacies of the 20th Twentieth Century and the Process of “Antiquisation” in Macedonia. The book was published by Purdue University Press.
