Lit­er­a­ture and film from East Europe’s for­got­ten „Sec­ond World“: essays of invi­ta­tion
BuchcoverCzecho­slo­va­kia, Yugoslavia—no longer on the map. East Europe of the social­ist peri­od may seem like a his­tor­i­cal odd­i­ty, appar­ent­ly so dif­fer­ent from every­thing before and after. Yet the mas­ter­pieces of lit­er­a­ture and cin­e­ma from this large­ly for­got­ten “Sec­ond World,” as well as by the authors formed in it and work­ing in its after­math, sur­prise and delight with their con­tem­po­rary res­o­nance.
This book intro­duces and illu­mi­nates a num­ber of these works. It explores how their aes­thet­ic inge­nu­ity dis­cov­ers ways of engag­ing exis­ten­tial and uni­ver­sal predica­ments, such as how one may sur­vive in the world of vic­tim­iza­tions, or imag­ine a good city, or broach the human bound­aries to live as a plant.
Like true clas­sics of world art, these nov­els, sto­ries, and films—to rephrase Bohu­mil Hrabal—keep “telling us things about our­selves we don’t know.” In live­ly and jar­gon-free prose, Gor­dana P. Crnkovic builds on her rich teach­ing expe­ri­ence to cre­ate paths to these works and reveal how they changed lives.

Mas­ter nar­ra­tives of the Mid­dle Ages in Bul­gar­ia
BuchcoverThis vol­ume offers a his­to­ry of his­to­ri­og­ra­phy, as Roumen Daskalov presents a crit­i­cal analy­sis of Bul­gar­i­an his­to­ri­o­graph­i­cal views of the Mid­dle Ages to reveal their embed­ded­ness in their his­tor­i­cal con­text and their adap­ta­tion to the con­tem­po­rary cir­cum­stances. The study traces the estab­lish­ment of a mas­ter nar­ra­tive of the Bul­gar­i­an Mid­dle Ages and its evo­lu­tion over time to the present day, includ­ing the attempt at a Marx­ist counter-nar­ra­tive. Daskalov uses cat­e­gories of mas­ter nation­al nar­ra­tives, which typ­i­cal­ly are sto­ries of ori­gins and migra­tions, state foun­da­tions and ris­es (“gold­en ages”), and decline and fall, yet they also assert the con­ti­nu­ity of the “peo­ple”, present cer­tain his­tor­i­cal per­son­al­i­ties (good or evil, “great” or “weak”), and describe cer­tain actions or pas­siv­i­ty to oth­ers‘ actions.
