Geschichte, Gesellschaft und Kultur in Südosteuropa Edited by Hannes Grandits and Wolfgang Höpken
Balkanologische Veröffentlichungen (BV) were founded by Norbert Reiter in 1979 as a forum for a broad spectrum of balkanological research, with special regard to linguistic work. Vol. 39 (2003) introduced a change in profile of the series. Renouncing linguistic studies, now monographs and collections on history, society and culture in the Balkans appear. The focus is on research relating to history, cultural science, ethnology as well as social and culture anthropology.
The internationality of the authors must be emphasized. They publish in German, English or French. Topics range from political and social history to research in nationalism and ethnicity, minorities, gender studies, remembrance and memory, folk culture and everyday practices to history of religion and education.
