A WARTIME TOWN. A REPORT FROM BESIEGED SARAJEVO (Miasto w wojnie. Raport z oblezonego Sarajewa)
Languages of publication
This anthropological story deals with Sarajevo, a town submerged in war, where contrary to all odds life continues to follow its course; daily events are salvaged thank to human ingenuity and 'the texts of culture'. The authoress paid special attention to analysing the topos of the 'closed town', with its logic of a 'world turned upside down', a characteristic suspension of 'normal' time, and a special comprehension of space. In doing so, she shows the similarity between the descriptions of time and space of wartime Sarajevo and Leningrad under siege.
