What did Bosnian art look like in the Middle Ages?
Why was there a conflict between Austria-Hungary and Serbia about the river Drina?
These and many more questions will be answered by the "South-East-Europe Science Slam" at the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek on 10 February 2022. On the occasion of the exhibition "Facing the Balkans", six scholars compete for the attention and favour of the audience. All of them are researchers of South-East Europe and want to convey interesting and instructive, surprising and entertaining facts about this multi-faceted region. The slam participants each give an introduction to their current research project in a ten-minute talk. The audience votes for the best contribution at the end.
From master student to doctoral student, up to professor, there are scholars of all career stages. The following participants will introduce their current research projects:
- Amina Abaspahić, history M. A. student at the University of Sarajevo
- David Borchin, doctoral candidate at Lucian-Blaga University Sibiu
- Prof. Emir O. Filipović, Associate Professor for Medieval History at the University of Sarajevo
- Frederik Lange, doctoral candidate at the Graduate School for East- and South-East European Studies at the University of Regensburg
- Claudia Laštro, doctoral candidate at the Centre for South-East European Studies at the University of Graz
- Dr. Olivia Spiridon, head of the research section literature studies/linguistics at the Institute of Danube Swabian History and Regional Studies
The science slam takes place on the occasion of the annual exhibition "Facing the Balkans. South-East Europe in photographs by Harald Schmitt", which will be shown by the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek up to 4 March 2022. 100 photographs by the former stern photographer Harald Schmitt invite visitors to scrutinize their own ideas of South-East Europe.
The contributions are partly in the English language.
