Yugoslav Monuments Associated with the First World War (1918–1941)

symposium, Ljubljana, 18–19 October 2018

The First World War monuments produced in interwar Yugoslavia are today usually discussed separately, within the context of the successor state to which they belong. The symposium will attempt to present a picture of this production that is as comprehensive as possible, outlining not only the common features of these works but also their differences, which to a large degree were conditioned by very diverse local traditions of commemoration and memorial creation.

Lecturers: Andrea Baotić-Rustanbegović, Ljiljana Dobrovšak, Nenad Lajbenšperger, Petra Svoljšak, Danilo Šarenac, Marko Štepec, Beti Žerovc
