Overview

Women's writing from the former/post-Yugoslavia recollects but also produces the links among the post-Yugoslav present and the Yugoslav past – as either those bygone Yugoslav days or the recent war history. Along with a gynocritical intervention that draws attention to an uninterrupted marginalization of women authors, but also structurally confined female narrators and protagonists, Tijana Matijevic conceptualizes the post-Yugoslav literary field, i.e. the contemporary literary production from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Serbia. Along this quest to find the Female Continent, post-Yugoslavia has been demarcated and liberated by feminist writing as collective space-building.
