Rethinking animals so that they are no longer those between zoé and bios (Wadiwel 2015, Agamben 1999<strong>). </strong>According to Paul Taylor (1986), from the viewpoint of biocentric equality, all organisms, regardless of their species, have the same internal value and right to be treated respectfully. In this way researchers have already started their journey towards biocentrism and ecocentrism.</p> <p>The thematic issue Traditiones is therefore an interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary set of discussions from different humanities, from zoofolklore studies to cultural and critical animal studies and others sciences that put the animal at the centre.</p> 2023-08-16T16:16:22+02:00 Heritage on the Margins? Central and Eastern European Perspectives (Traditiones 53, 2024) 2023-06-26T14:52:38+02:00 Traditiones <p>The history of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) has been characterized by the violent changing of borders and routes ever since WW1 and WW2. Post-war events continue to shape everyday local realities, state formations, and displacement of communities. (Self)imposed views on centrality and/or marginality of the region come strongly to the fore when considering these developments, producing inherent diversity. Socialism and post-socialism can be understood as a unifying experience in the region, but it is also highly differentiated, when considered alongside historical events and local political developments. How are all these diverse historical developments affecting heritage related processes in the region? What kind of perspectives can be gained from CEE heritage-making processes?</p> <p>The issue aims to discuss identified common themes of the Central and East European heritage studies: marginality and centrality, the impact of WW1 and WW2, the interplay of borders and routes, displacement of people, differentiated legacies of (post)socialism and future CEE heritage prospects. Its intention is to stimulate discussion about how various case studies of heritagization in CEE can contribute to the wider critical heritage studies.</p> <p>We kindly invite you to submit a contribution that examines, among others, the following themes:</p> <ul> <li>Heritage processes and post-socialism</li> <li>(De)colonization of heritage</li> <li>Balkanisation and orientalisation of Central and East European Heritage</li> <li>The role of regional museums and heritage institutions</li> <li>Heritage-making of borders</li> <li>Migration heritage</li> <li>Heritage of Yugoslav Socialism</li> <li>Future of CEE heritage-making</li> </ul> <p>The submission deadline is 31st December 2023.</p> <p>Guest editors: <a href="">Špela Ledinek Lozej</a> and <a href="">Nataša Rogelja Caf</a>.</p> 2023-06-26T14:52:38+02:00
