The West Croatian History Journal (Časopis za povijest Zapadne Hrvatske ) is soliciting papers for a Special Interdisciplinary Issue on „Wars and Remembrance“ throughout the entire history of Central Europe, Southeastern Europe and the Mediterranean basin.
The concept of “collective remembrance” is useful for analyzing how state actors construct and use narratives of past conflicts for their own political legitimacy. Simultaneously other “memory entrepreneurs” – whether the political opposition, marginalized groups, or other organizations with vested interests in positing counter-narratives of past conflicts – challenge the dominant narratives from the bottom up. We are encouraging scholars in the region and abroad to submit an article or working paper on the nexus between war, memories and practices of remembrance.
