Ustvarjanje podobe sosedstva: Avstrija, Slovenija in diskurzi o jugovzhodni Evropi
1 January 2007–31 December 2008

The project aims to investigate the development of discourses through which an image of Southeastern Europe (“Western Balkans”) as a neighbouring region was created in Slovenia and Austria. Furthermore, it contextualises these discourses into a wider framework of discursive practices of creating other and otherness.

The project work entails the following activities: a) collecting research material, b) writing scientific articles, c) drafting a scientific monograph to be published by Peace Institute in 2009 (in Slovene and English), d) lectures at international conferences, invited lectures at Slovenian faculties and universities abroad, e) cooperation with Austrian Academy of Sciences (project preparatory work “Orientalism in Central Europe).
