ISHA Skopje Conference 2017 – “History that is not yet history: Yugoslav wars through the social prism”

On December 2, the project “History that is not yet History” took place in Skopje. About 60 people attended the conference named “Yugoslav wars through the social prism”. The conference was attended by a wide range of participants: historians, researchers, educators, community activists and others interested about this topic. The event included talks by our ISHA members, professors from the Faculty of Philosophy and guests from ISHA Osijek and ISHA Sofia. They discussed how Yugoslav wars affected the social life, economic situation, music, cinematography, sports, minorities, education etc.

Тhe event was divided into two working sections and included 9 presentations. For some of them there were presentations with photos and audio and video files. The guest had the opportunity to ask questions and discussed the topics.

Feedback from the conference was very positive. Participants greatly enjoyed the chance to meet like-minded people from another countries, the opportunity to learn from one another, and the chance to explore ideas.

I would also like to thank everyone who attended this event and made the conference a memorable and successful occasion. All of us made new friends and contacts and this can only contribute for new collaborations.
