The Experience of Exile and Home in Connection with the Self-Understanding of the Poet in the Poetry by Tomaž Šalamun
Mateja Eniko, 2017, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: For the poetic creation of Tomaž Šalamun, one of the most important Slovenian modernist poets, the experience of staying abroad was crucial. This was his voluntary and conscious decision. Referring to Said, it was his choice to give force to his creativity. Šalamun’s necessity to go out of home borders is closely connected with his understanding of the role of the poet. In his poetry, exile is represented as experience that allows him to establish himself as a poet, gives him the power to create and to step out of the conventional frameworks. The motive of living abroad is presented in a tense relation to home (both in terms of intimacy and socio-political space). Starting from Bakhtin's theory of dialogism, the poet’s self-understanding of himself and his home is closely linked to the relationship with the other.

Iconoclastic Ruptures: Black Lives Matter and the cleansing of colonial memory
Gal Kirn, 2020, polemic, discussion, commentary

Abstract: The removal of racist and oppressive pasts through the toppling of monuments standing in the epicentres of colonial and slave dominions, the US, UK and across Europe, has ruffled the feathers of leading conservative politicians, historians and even some ‘liberal’ thinkers and representatives, who claim that historical revisionism should not come with ‘erasure’ and iconoclasm. Conservative discourse calls this activity looting, saying that ‘the mob’ commits violent actions against society, its order and property, in the same way rioters loot our tradition and monumental legacy. As a scholar of partisan, socialist and postsocialist transition, focusing on the postsocialist cleansing of memory, I would like to compare these two historical moments: 1990s postsocialist memorial revisionism with the current iconoclasm of the Black Lives Matter movement.
