Project:

Writers of Yutlantis: Post-Yugoslav Literature and the “Common Cultural Space”

Selected works of fiction that emerged during and after the fall of Yugoslav socialism as well as during and after the wars for Yugoslav succession (1991-1999) will be studied in the light of competing collective narratives (nationalism vs. cosmopolitanism) to understand literary varieties of participation in and the construction of post-Yugoslav “common cultural space”.
