How do people construct collective identity during profound societal
transformations? This volume examines the discursive construction of identity
related to important national holidays in nine countries of Central Europe and
the Balkans: Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic,
Macedonia, Montenegro, Poland, Serbia, and Slovakia. The chapters focus on the
decades during which these countries moved from communism towards democracy
and a market economy. This transition saw revivals of national values and a
new significance of regional and transnational ties, entangled with
negotiations of national identity that have been particularly lively in
discourse concerning national holidays.

The chapters apply discourse analysis in addition to approaches from history,
sociology, political science, and anthropology. All of the analyses make use
of empirical material in the Slavic languages, including newspaper articles,
interviews and other media contributions, sermons, addresses, and speeches by
members of the political elite.

Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis
