The website Humboldt Balkan Cosmos documents the projects of the department of South Slavonic Studies in Berlin, which are funded by the DAAD programme “University dialogue with the countries of the Western Balkans“.

Humboldt Balkan Cosmos accompanies the ERASMUS+ network CoLABnet which has been founded in 2015 between Humboldt-University and partners in Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, Monetengro, and Serbia.

Humboldt Balkan Cosmos meshes the actions of several ongoing research projects on the South Slavia at the interface of linguistics, history, and ethnology and elaborates new indermedial formats of teaching rooted in research.

Humboldt Balkan Cosmos implements the university’s third mission by internationalising university education and hence strengthening civil society in the Western Balkans.

Demarcations and crossings of borders in and with South Eastern Europe

The field trip “Demarcations and crossings of borders in and with South Eastern Europe” lead a group of Serbian and German students to disparate settings of Turkish, Albanian and Slavic-speaking Muslims in Macedonia and Albania, and will introduce us to the specific dialectics of how people see themselves and are seen by others, as well as of integration and segregation.

Young academics are aiming to disseminate the various aspects of Balkan Islam, put this into context and present their findings  This website is supposed to help cluster our impressions, experiences and conclusions of the field trip.

The results of the field trip have also been documented in form of an exhibition which is permamently located at the department for Slavonic studies at HU Berlin with temporal displays at the university of Belgrade. The participants of the field trip further prepared two multimedia presentations which have been presented to the public at HU Berlin on the 16th of february and at the University of Belgrade on the 26th of february.

 

 

This DAAD-field trip is part of an academic dialogue between Germany and South Eastern Europe, which the Southern Slavic Studies of the Humboldt University of Berlin would like to  extend to include the present-day diagnostic impact and third mission of the universities.
