Interest in Balkan Studies, especially among scholars from the Balkans, has increased considerably. Being such a unique region, the Balkans have stirred the imagination of writers, travelers, scholars and the like. The aim of the conference is to gather together scholars from the Balkan region and worldwide who share an interest in Balkan studies. The conference promises to offer multidisciplinary perspectives in various fields of Balkan studies, namely in literature, cultural and language studies. It will be open to complementary and alternative ideas and interpretations. One of the main ambitions will be tackling taboo topics with the intention to overcome any forms of ordinary fanaticism, bias, fabricated antagonism, prejudices and stereotypes.

Dear Colleagues,

C19 Conference (2018): Genealogies of Homonationalism

updated:

Homonationalism has typically been used to name a late-twentieth and twenty-first century phenomenon in which gay and lesbian rights discourse has achieved power, in part, by donning the rhetoric of U.S. exceptionalism. Yet Jasbir Puar’s 2013 re-articulation of homonationalism as a “facet of modernity and a historical shift” also points to an underexplored set of questions pertinent to nineteenth-century American Studies: What are the deeper genealogies of homonationalism? What forms does it take in periods prior to the popularization of the “homosexual” as a type in Euro-American sexology? What earlier iterations of nationalist homosociality also comprise something like a sexual politics?
