Call for Papers - The 1999 NATO Bombing: Memories, Narratives and Histories

Conference venue: Belgrade, Serbia
Period: February 27-28, 2015
Deadline for submitting abstracts: December 15, 2014
Deadline for submitting full papers: February 13, 2015



Fifteen years after the NATO intervention in the Kosovo Crisis and the 1999 bombing of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRJ), this historical event is among the most contested memories in post-Milosevic Serbia. Research on the recent memories and narratives of the NATO bombing is however still scarce and underthematized.

In the workshop we aim to bring together a group of scholars to engage with questions related to this event and its current remembering in Serbia.  We are searching for participants who will present their research on themes related to the memories, narratives and histories of the 1999 NATO bombing of the FRJ.

All papers and discussions will take place in English. In the follow-up of the workshop we will aim for a special issue of a peer-reviewed journal. Details will be specified after the workshop.
