Brown Bag: Yugoslavia as Counter-Narrative and Political Allegory in the Post-Yugoslav Satirical Literature

BB: Goran Lazičić - Yugoslavia as Counter-Narrative and Political Allegory in the Post-Yugoslav Satirical Literature

 

After Tito’s death in 1980 the Socialist Republic of Yugoslavia existed for another decade. The social and economic crisis had radical ideological and political consequences: ethnic nationalisms increased, and the rapid erosion of Communism as well as the idea of Yugoslav unity took place, which ended in the wars of the 1990s. In a series of fictional literary texts and essays since the late 1980s, Dubravka Ugrešić, David Albahari, and Svetislav Basara wrote critically and satirically on the ethnic nationalisms, chauvinism, and violence that flooded the public and political scene of Serbia and Croatia. In focus of the talk are works where Yugoslavia is a frequent metaphorical motif, as well as a counter-narrative that provides the affirmative pole of satirical attack. The historical heritage of socialist Yugoslavia remains however an ambivalent symbol in these texts, on the one hand, it is also a target of satirical subversion, while on the other, it is sometimes depicted with melancholy and (Yugo)nostalgia.

Goran Lazičić is PhD-candidate at the Department of Slavic Studies at the University of Graz. He has completed his graduate studies at the Department of Serbian Literature, Faculty of Philology at the University of Belgrade and his master studies at the Department of Comparative Literature at the University of Vienna. He works as project assistant at the Department of Slavic Studies at the University of Graz and is currently a DOC-Fellow of the Austrian Academy of Sciences.
