Advice on post-war reconstruction case studies in the Balkans region
I am currently studying for a PhD in Town and Country Planning at Queen's University Belfast on how nations narrate their recent histories in the built form by re-constructing, conserving, neglecting and destroying their contested built heritage. This summer, I intend to complete some fieldwork in some of the following locations- Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia. My research will focus on the role of re-construction and restoration projects and their potential for aiding reconciliation in post-war situations. Any suggestions on potential case studies or general advice will be most gratefully received.
