Call for papers

Scientific conference titled “30 years since the attack on Dubrovnik: Political, communicational and cultural aspects of the city under siege” will be held on October 1-2, 2021 at the University of Dubrovnik.

Thirty years after the attacks on Dubrovnik University, Dubrovnik, in cooperation with the Croatian Academy of Science and Arts & Linnaeus University, Sweden, we are organizing an interdisciplinary conference. The scope of the conference is interdisciplinary and contributions from different disciplines are welcome. A special focus of the conference will be given to analysis and comparisons with other cities that were under siege (Vukovar, Sarajevo, Srebrenica…) during the wars in the former Yugoslavia (1991-1999), but comparisons with other conflicts are also welcome.

Proposals may include, but are not limited to, the following topics:

  • Understanding the context: the dissolution of Yugoslavia
  • War reporting practices from the Dubrovnik area;
  • Media analysis on the subject of war in Dubrovnik, Croatia and the ex-Yugoslav area from 1988 to 1995;
  • Media and their role in international relations, with a special mention of the recognition of the new states (Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia & Herzegovina);
  • Strategic communication during wartime (media war);
  • Journalists during the war, humanizing the war, journalistic identification with casualties of war;
  • Journalistic sources in wartime;
  • War propaganda, media control and manipulation;
  • Cities under siege – comparative analysis
  • Framing the war and collective memory – commemorations, narratives and the confronting of interpretations
  • Remembering the war – museums and monuments
  • Cultural heritage under the siege

Selected conference papers will be published in the special issue of the journal Collegium Antropologicum (Scopus).
