Members of the CITSEE team recently returned from the 2012 ASN Conference in New York, where two well attended panels were convened: "Minorities and Territoriality in post-Yugoslav Citizenship Constellations" and "The Transformative Power of Europeanization: Reconceptualizing the “Citizenship – Rule of Law” Nexus". In addition, a number of other past and future CITSEE fellows and team members were present giving papers in other panels.
CITSEE has launched a video trailer, detailing the project and its key findings thus far, and setting the scene for the team's new work on narratives of citizenship in south east Europe.
In May 2012, members of the team are attending the Subversive Festival in Zagreb, attending a series of forum events on "What is the future for Europe and its Citizens" and blogging about the main speakers and events. The blog on the Subversive Forum is one of several new content items added to the web magazine Citizenship in South East Europe, including an interview with Lawrence Weschler, author of the book Vermeer in Bosnia, a collection of narrative nonfiction that explored the connections between the 20th century’s wars in the Balkans and the equally violent Holland in which Vermeer created his paintings and a photo reportage presenting a new edited collection on visual culture after Yugoslavia.
Over the summer, CITSEE will be publishing several new working papers stemming from the ongoing research of the team, and in September will welcome new fellows to Edinburgh. More details to follow.
