Gender and Sexuality in Bosnian History

Focusing on the issues of gender, body, and sexuality is a particularly intriguing and fruitful

way for approaching Bosnian history. This working group will make use of an interdisciplinary

approach (history, sociology, cultural, and visual study) in order to examine the following his-

torical questions:

–– How did the public discourses about sex and sexuality change in Bosnia at the turn of the

20th century?

–– Which role did the Habsburg and Ottoman imperial experiences / legacies play?

–– How was the woman issue declined in the post-Ottoman Bosnia, particularly with regard

to Muslim women?

–– How did the issues of gender, religion, and nation intertwine in the first Yugoslavia?

–– Which were the prostitution policies in the late-Habsburg period, and how did they change

during the course of the 20th century?

The participants will read and discuss excerpts from academic texts, in order to contextualize

the Bosnian case in a broader academic and historical context. Many visual sources will also

be provided: they will offer an opportunity to apply and test the theoretical and methodologi-

cal inputs derived from the texts. Finally, we shall visit museums and cultural institutions, so

as to gain a better understanding of this – quite under-researched – side of Bosnian history

and of its public memory nowadays.
