Balkan Identity: Changing Self-Images of the South Slavs
Saric, Ljiljana
Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, v25 n5-6 p389-407 2004
This paper provides an analysis of texts containing the noun "the Balkans" and the adjective "Balkan" in a small corpus of approximately 80 journalistic texts from different south Slavic regions currently available online. The texts were published over the last 10 years. The term "the Balkans" and its derivations currently play a significant role in constructing both self-images and heteroimages in the south Slavic regions. The aim of the analysis is to ask whether there are differences in attitudes towards a "Balkan identity" among the south Slavs and to highlight the cultural and historical background of the images of the Balkans.
