Research project at the Kolleg

At the Kolleg I'll be working on the project War Criminals or Martyrs? (History, politics of memory, and law in Serbia and Croatia in previous three decades), which is a part of the broader project on researching the process of various types of the rehabilitation (public, judicial, historiographical etc.) of the persons accused immediately after the WWII by the new regimes, organized by the communists, for the war crimes and collaboration with the occupiers during the war period (1941-945). The project deals with the issues that reflect the present state of the revisionist narratives and practices actualized in the process of renovatio burgensis (transition) that became actual after the destruction/collapse of socialism and abandonment of its' privileged paradigms. Methodological approach in this research combines historiographical and legal research methods, as well as the memory studies methodology, thus revealing different layers of this complex issue and their dynamic permeation.
