PREFACE

In 2001, the Center for the Study of Balkan Societies and Cultures (CSBSC) in Graz initiated

a research project on recent historiography in Southeast Europe funded by the Austrian

Ministry of Education, Science and Culture. Sixteen historians from the region and Austria worked on the project to analyse the state of Southeast European historiography and its development since the end of socialism. 1 The aim of the project was to define the place of historiography in the transformed Balkan states and to present the major trends in recent historical scholarship in the region. The authors shared the concern that history and the ways a society remembers its past — a process to which historians make a significant contribution — also play an important role in the current and future development of any country. The discipline of history can impede the development of democratic and tolerant relations but it can also facilitate them. Historians have a responsibility to society they have too often tragically failed in the past by providing authoritarian and nationalist ideologies with historical legitimacy. The project concentrated on the political meanings of historical writing,

and in how far historians have overcome the legacy of complicity with the communist system and the traps of nationalism. Greece was included as a valuable comparative example of a country that experienced transformation from another type of dictatorship to democracy.

The results revealed that history is an important issue for the states of Southeast Europe and their populations. This is illustrated by the privileged position historiography enjoys in comparison with other disciplines in the humanities despite the financial problems many of the institutions engaged in historical research faced during the troubled years of transformation. Nevertheless, in most countries of Southeast Europe a great variety of institutes is doing research in the field of history, and society — for better or worse — is showing an interest. The institutional framework of historical research is important for understanding the dynamics of the production of historical knowledge since institutions have a significant impact on how the individual historian approaches the past. A central aim of the research project was to map the institutional landscape in the field of historiography.

The handbook gives an overview of the most significant historical research institutes in the countries of Southeast Europe (Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia — with a separate section on Kosovo —, and Slovenia). Aside from state-run historical institutes, important non-governmental research centres are included in the documentation, as well as museums and archives, in as far as they carry out research. With this comprehensive information, the handbook details the institutional richness and variety of historiography in the region. It not only reveals the foci of research and the directions of state funding for historical writing, but offers details on the

1 The project results were published in Ulf Brunnbauer (ed.), (Re)Writing History. Historiography in Southeast Europe after Socialism. Münster et al.: Lit-Verlag, 2004.

character and output of historical institutes enabling readers to locate them and obtain an idea of what kind of research they do. Each chapter includes information on the institutional affiliation of the respective institute, its structure and staff, as well as its research topics and major publications (monographs, collections and periodicals). Institutes are identified by their original name as well as its English translation. Contact details are also given. The institutions are described in the following order: history and history-related institutes of the Academy of Sciences or analogous institutions; university departments of history; regional institutes, museums and archives; non-governmental institutions and private institutions concerned with historical research.

For anyone interested in Southeast European historiography, the handbook presents an essential tool for locating the leading institutes in this field. By making the data available, the authors hope to facilitate co-operation and information exchange. Although the authors did their best to include the most relevant institutes in the handbook, they acknowledge that the collection is not complete. Should any reader feel that a further historical research institute should be included in this book, then he or she is invited to inform the Center for the Study of Balkan Studies so that we can update the information.
