Nataša Jagdhuhn's Post-Yugoslav Metamuseums: Reframing Second World War Heritage in Postconflict Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Serbia (Palgrave Macmillan, 2022) analyzes the reframing of Second World War heritage in the memorial museums of the post-socialist, post-conflict states of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, and Serbia. In focusing on two specific models of memorial museum – the People’s Liberations Struggle Museum and the Museum of the Revolution – Jagdhuhn traces the treatment of Second World War heritage in socialist Yugoslavia both during the Yugoslav wars, and in successor states after the end of the conflict. In doing so, she provides new insight into the complex museological practices that have shaped this heritage.
Nataša Jagdhuhn is Postdoctoral Fellow at Friedrich Schiller University Jena. Her research focuses on memory constructs in the successor states of the former Yugoslavia, museum transformation in post-socialist Europe, the history of museology from a Global South perspective, and current debates on decolonizing heritage worldwide.
