Abstract
This volume is a collection of essays focusing on performance and public rituals in four South-Eastern European countries: Macedonia, Montenegro, Moldova, and Bosnia and Herzegovina. The “ambiguous” nation-building of the four nation-states is a process of imagining the political community of the nations that “always necessitates—even presupposes—the imagining of an international community, a ‘Family of Nations’” (Malkki, Liisa. 1994. “Citizens of Humanity: Internationalism and the Imagined Community of Nations.” Diaspora: A Journal of Transnational Studies 3: 41–68, 62). Thus, we offer an approach to nation-building that is revealing of how performance, rituals and politics are at the heart of the new and ambiguous nation-building in the region of South-Eastern Europe. The articles address the intersection between nation-building, the state and public performance/rituals in (post)socialist timeframes and show how sovereignty of a nation-state is constructed, performed, and disseminated through public rituals, festivals, and practices.
