Race and the Yugoslav region

Postsocialist, post-conflict, postcolonial?

First Edition

Catherine Baker

Published by Manchester University Press

Theory for a Global Age

  • Challenges traditional thinking on postsocialism and Eastern Europe by making race central to the study of the Yugoslav region
  • Appears at a moment when the politics of the refugee crisis and Islamophobia demand contextualisation that prevailing agendas do not provide
  • Demonstrates how the study of a former-state-socialist, post-Habsburg and post-Ottoman region can be informed by questions of racism, whiteness and identification with colonial projects of modernity
  • Establishes global postcoloniality and the transnational 'translation' of notions of whiteness, blackness and indigeneity as a subject of East European area studies research
