The Bosniaks: Nationhood after Genocide—A Book Talk by Jasmin Mujanović (03/20/24)

Join us for a book talk by Jasmin Mujanović. The Bosniaks: Nationhood after Genocide is “a compelling exploration of Bosniak political identity, chronicling the development of a nation and its people in the wake of catastrophe.”

Jasmin Mujanović illuminates the sources of contemporary Bosniak political identity, tracing the evolution of a religious community into a secular nation, and shedding light on the future of a nation at a crossroads. He explores the idea of Bosnia and Herzegovina as a ‘national homeland’, considers how narratives of genocide influence self-identity, and probes how demographic changes are putting pressure on the country’s political framework.

The event will be moderated by Vesko Garčević, Professor of the Practice of International Relations at the Pardee School of Global Studies.

Co-sponsored by the Holocaust, Genocide and Human Rights Studies Program at the Elie Wiesel Center for Jewish Studies.
