Interdisciplinary Summer School in Macedonian Cultural Identities

Application deadline: Apr. 15, 2011

Interdisciplinary Summer School in Macedonian Cultural Identities

In the context of the actual situation and artificially generated issues with the constitutional name of our country, the language, as well as the identity of Macedonian population, it is necessary to think of a seriously conceived and scholarly established inquiry of all the relevant elements related to the expression “Macedonian cultural identity” not as an exclusive feature of the dominant ethnicity in the Republic of Macedonia, rather as a historical category reflecting the cultural existence of Macedonians through the centuries, today reflecting itself in the political and social actuality. The analysis of the binary categories, such are: the Slav ship and the Antique tradition, the national consensus and the multi-ethnical character of the modern state, the deeply rooted orthodox tradition and the respect for the confessional freedom of the population, the national treasury of cultural legacy and the multicultural concept of ethnical cohabitation, created a great deal of confusion at open debates and other subjective forms of discussion and generated negative results reflected in the escalation of the inter-ethnical and inter-religious dialog in the Republic of Macedonia.
In that regard, the aim of the School is the professional and scientific analysis of the: historical categories, socio-ethnical and confessional components, language and linguistic forms, cultural traditions and artistic creativity, which should determine and define the components of Macedonian cultural identity as an unity of historical memory, collective awareness and creative potential of the entire population of contemporary Macedonian state.
