After Yugoslavia

Marijeta Božović

Stanford University Press

The introduction outlines the rationale of the volume and provides critical chapter summaries. One of the central binaries interrogated throughout the volume is that of individual versus collective memory. What of this post-Yugoslavia is mine alone, and what is ours? Who are we? Who would we like to become? How does one make sense of the diverse, yet interconnected post-Yugoslav cultural spaces? What combination of contradictory tools and methodologies will shed light on the story of the Western Balkans, Central Europe, Southeast Europe, the former Yugoslavia, or any of these transitional spaces with contested names? Attempts offered here range from the meditative personal history, to inquiry, to linguistic research, to theoretically charged interventions, and to close readings that bracket recent political history in pursuit of other categories of knowledge. In place of a dominant metanarrative, the contributors to After Yugoslavia attempt a polylogue, a multiplicity of communicating voices.

Keywords:   collective memory, Yugoslav cultural spaces, Western Balkans, Central Europe, Southeast Europe, personal history, multiplicity of voices
