Women in the Ottoman Balkans : gender, culture and history by Amila Buturovic( )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 873 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume not only deepens our understanding of the distinctive contributions that women have made to Balkan history but also re-evaluates this through a more inclusive and interdisciplinary analysis in which gender takes its place alongside other categories such as class, religion, ethnicity and nationhood
Stone speaker : medieval tombs, landscape, and Bosnian identity in the poetry of Mak Dizdar by Amila Buturović( Book )

12 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Poet Mak Dizdar (d.1971) has become a cultural icon in contemporary Bosnia-Herzegovina. Inspired by the lapidary imagery and epitaphs of medieval Bosnian tombstones, his best-acclaimed collection of poetry, Stone Sleeper, reawakens the medieval voices and assigns them a new role in the historical imagination of contemporary Bosnians. In this study, Amila Buturovic looks at Stone Sleeper's recovery of the ancestral world as an effort to refashion the sentiments of collective belonging. In treating the medieval tombstones as sites of collective memory, Dizdar's poetry evokes new possibilities for Bosnians to cast aside national differences based primarily on religion and embrace a pluralistic identity rooted in the sacred landscape of medieval Bosnia
Carved in stone, etched in memory : death, tombstones and commemoration in Bosnian Islam since c. 1500 by Amila Buturovic( )

10 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gravestones are seen as cultural spaces that inscribe memory, history, and heritage in addition to being texts that display first-hand information about the deceased. This book underscores the importance of material culture, specifically gravestones, funerary inscriptions and images, in tracing and understanding more subtle changes in Bosnia's religious landscape and the complex cultural shifts and exchange between Christianity and Islam in this area. Drawing upon several disciplinary methods, the book has much to offer anyone looking for a better understanding of the intersection of Christianity and Islam, as well as those with an interest in death studies"--Provided by publisher

Sociology of popular drama in Medieval Egypt : Ibn Dāniyāl and his shadow plays by Amila Buturović( Book )

5 editions published between 1993 and 1997 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This thesis discusses the shadow play in mediaeval Arabo-Islamic societies, and the most outstanding playwright in that genre, Ibn Daniyal (d.710/1310). Despite the lack of other extant plays, it is shown that the shadow play had a long and dynamic tradition in mediaeval Islam, as attested to by various written sources that refer to it through two 'frames' of perception: as allegory and as theatre. These two frames indicate that there is a close link between the intrinsic development of this theatrical genre and the coinage of allegorical expressions geared to the understanding of the cosmological order. The principal features of the shadow theatre are analyzed in the light of theatrical semiotics, focusing on Ibn Daniyal's trilogy Kitab Tayf al-khayal. It is argued that Ibn Daniyal's dramaturgy, emphasizing a collective social experience, relies strongly on the peculiarities of the genre in the process of foregrounding the playwright's ideological concerns. Ibn Daniyal's possible worlds, seeking to harmonize the contending ideologies of Mamluk society, are familiar yet saliently delimited, as the theatrical frame through which they are induced is consciously highlighted."--

Narrating the nation : a dialogue of narrative, hegemony and Yugoslav national context in Ivo Andric's The Bridge on the Drina (1977) and Emir Kusturica's Underground (1995) by Milana M Bodiroga( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis examines the dialogue between two texts meant to contribute to the mythistory (Aleksic, 2007) and what I term the storied context of the second Yugoslav experiment (1945-1995). From within the lens of my own diasporic context, I juxtapose Ivo Andric's The bridge on the Drina (1945/1959), published at the nation's outset, against Emir Kusturica's Underground (1995), produced at Yugoslavia's failing end. I analyze the thematic connections and ideological constraints to the conversation between these two texts by establishing the parameters of both Kusturica's successful and unsuccessful attempts to engage Andric's Drina (1945/1959). A template for the continued overlaying of discrepant voices (Said, 1993) is revealed for further examination both backward into the mythistories of the Southwest Slavs of the Balkans and forward into the construction of storied contexts in the former Yugoslav states. Finally, a discussion of the influence of the West's own imaginary of the former Yugoslavia and its influence on contextualizing stories of the same is also examined
