This seminar builds on the premise that modernist movement in arts, media and culture was at some level geographical, and that in certain geographies there were complex reactions to the European modernism. Culturally and politically very turbulent—because of earth-shattering events at the time like the demise of two old empires, WWI and WW2—at the inception, height and aftermath of the modernist movement, Southeast Europe is one such area where one sees a range of reactions from extreme avant-garde attitudes to failed aspirations.

Perhaps nothing dominates our current times like the global refugee situation. The sheer number of people seeking a safe place to live is overwhelming. As this is happening in an information society, a large part of the global population is conditioned by media images of refugee camps and refugee routes. Most people in this world are currently either refugees themselves or witness to a refugee crisis. How does this affect literature?
