YUGONOSTALGIA

Between collective memory and political action: emancipative potentials of yugonostalgia in post-Dayton Bosnia-Hercegovina

 

Yugonostalgia is usually considered a sentimental, passive, backward oriented mentality pattern and escapist emotion of the people, who suffered most during the last twenty years of post-Socialist transitionand fraticidal wars. However, the ambition of my presentation is to show how Yugonostalgia in contemporary Bosnia-Herzegovina is also an active social platform, cultural production, and emancipative political force, uniting most different discourses and groups of people: in nostalgic associations, in different public events and celebrations, in popular and alternative culture, in media, in the cyber world, even in consumerism and nostalgic tourism. Main features of this emancipative, engaged Yugonostalgia in Bosnia-Herzegovina are social criticism, defence of the past, openness to the outside world, and direct political activity. Examples show how it can offer – on the basis of the multicultural, tolerant tradition from the Socialist/Yugoslav decades – an effective and progressive alternative to the ethnic divisions, hatred, and exclusivism that still now prevail in this war-torn country.
