Gender and the Balkans, two categories present in the title of this book, for along time have been defined by hegemonic groups. As a consequence of the research assembled in this volume, it is high time to challenge biologist concepts of gender as well as primordialist views on ethnicity and nationality. As with the term gender, the exclusivist dichotomy of Europe versus the Balkans is gradually devolving into a question of degree, allowing for hybrid forms and osmosis. This volume includes fifteen contributions from a range of international scholars on three thematically diversified panels dealing with the wide-ranging fields of Politics and Society, Constructions of Gender in Language and the Media and History and Anthropology.
