Stifling intimacies : middle-class marriage in the short stories of four Central European women writers at the turn of the twentieth century
Katja Mihurko, 2023, independent scientific component part or a chapter in a monograph

Abstract: The chapter investigates how four Central-European women writers (Zofka Kveder, Grete Meisel-Hess, Adela Milčinović and Růžena Svobodová) through formal features (the narrator, the focalisor, the depiction of spaces, devices of poetical language, combining aestheticism and social critique, symbolism and realism) display the middle-class marriage as a social institution that can be suffocating for women, especially if they are not able or not willing to perform the role of the mother. The article also shows that selected Central-European women writers were all rooted in the Catholic ideology and consequently problematize the role of a woman within it. The selected short stories have many common traits, so the interpretation of the writings of Central-European women writers of the fin de siècle proves to be more productive when applying a transnational perspective in the research. Poglavje raziskuje, kako štiri srednjeevropske pisateljice (Zofka Kveder, Grete Meisel-Hess, Adela Milčinović in Růžena Svobodová) skozi formalne značilnosti (pripovedovalec, fokalizator, upodabljanje prostorov, sredstva poetičnega jezika, kombinacija estetike in družbene kritike, simbolizma in realizma) prikazujejo meščanski zakon kot socialno institucijo, ki je lahko za ženske dušeča, zlasti če ne morejo ali ne želijo opravljati vloge matere. Članek tudi pokaže, da so bile izbrane srednjeevropske pisateljice vse zasidrane v katoliški ideologiji in posledično problematizirajo vlogo ženske v njej. Izbrane kratke zgodbe imajo veliko skupnih značilnosti, zato se interpretacija pisanja srednjeevropskih pisateljic fin de siècla izkaže za produktivnejšo, če pri raziskovanju uporabimo transnacionalno perspektivo.

Marica Nadlišek Bartol and her editorial network around the first Slovenian women's newspaper Slovenka
Katja Mihurko, Narvika Bovcon, 2019, published scientific conference contribution abstract

Abstract: This paper aims to present the editorial practice of Marica Nadlišek Bartol, who edited the first Slovenian women's newspaper Slovenka (1897-1902) in the first three years of it's publishing. Nadlišek Bartol saw in the publishing of women's writings the main accomplishment of her editorship. She encouraged Sloveanian women to take up the pen and write down their feelings and reflections. Since Slovenian women writers entered the literary field not earlier than in 1848 there had been almost no role models in the national literary tradition. Nadlišek knew how to approach this problem: she had published the translations from and about foreign women writers and prompted the dialog between Slovenian women writers and their foreign counterparts. The paper examines which women writers were presented in the newspaper Slovenka and in which ways, how the articles about them caused the discussions on different topics concerning women's emancipations on the pages of the newspaper and in the public life, and how the fact that Slovenka was published on the national fringes in the multiethnical space of Trieste influenced Nadlišek's editorial practice. By using the data from the Virtual Research Enviroment Women Writers this paper also explores the possibilites of visual representation of Nadlišek's editorial network.

Teaching women writers with NEWW Virtual Research Environment
Katja Mihurko, Narvika Bovcon, Marie Nedregotten Sørbø, Viola Parente-Čapková, Amelia Sanz, Suzan Van Dijk, Aleš Vaupotič, 2018, published scientific conference contribution abstract

Abstract: The underrepresentation of women in cultural historiography has challenged a number of feminist responses in the form of supplementary female canons since the 1970s. The DARIAH Working Group Women Writers in History ( takes this task a step further, and investigates historical sources until 1930 to find out whether female authors were read in the past. The objective of the DARIAH Working Group WWIH is: to carry out research about female authorship in history, the international reception of women’s writing and the connections between women authors. Evidence of readership, translations and commentary is contained in the digital repository NEWW VRE (Virtual Research Environment), which serves as a collaborative research tool for the above mentioned working group.

Megi Rožič, 2016, doctoral dissertation

Abstract: People have travelled and migrated since the early periods of history and the phenomenon of migration, defined as “the movement of large numbers of people, birds or animals from one place to another” (Oxford Advanced Dictionary, 7th ed.) has a history of hundreds of years (Pourjafari, Vahidpour, 2014) and is by no means new. But the way of travelling, migrating and mobility in contemporary reality does have many specific aspects and recently it has been studied in new ways, with new concerns. The experience of migration in the contemporary world is a fundamental characteristic of human societies. “It is a system in which the circulation of people, sources and information follows multiple paths. The energy and barriers that alter the course or deflect the contemporary patterns of movement have both obvious and hidden features. While nothing is utterly random, the consequences of change are often far from predictable” (Papastergiadis, 2000: 1). This unpredictability and multidirectionality has led to changes in approaches to the study of migration in recent decades. In the last few decades the study of migration has increasingly been accompanied by a tendency to study it on the individual level − at the level of personal life stories (Milharčič Hladnik, 2007). These are also markedly expressed in the medium of literature. The present dissertation presents literary oeuvres of seven women writers, who thematise the autobiographical experience of migration, it offers an individually, woman-centred experience and view of migration. In selected oeuvres personal views are expressed on that experience, different strategies of coping with life in new realities and regarding relationships in these environments. The thematisation of the experience of migration in selected oeuvres is also connected with a problematisation of other concepts: the concepts of belonging, borders, nation-state, culture and language. It is also vitally connected with the personal identity construction of the lyrical subjects and literary characters and also because of the autobiographical character of selected literary works of the literary artists themselves. The experience of migration in selected literary works leads to unique identity formations, which in themselves combine elements of different cultural backgrounds and traditions. In their literary works these selected women writers also shape their relationship toward time and space dimensions, tradition and interpersonal relationships through the experience of migration. The experience of migration, the relocation of the subject and a change of the geographical area in selected oeuvres, does not only represent a change of the geographical position: it also allows a deviation from other rigid and seemingly fixed and unvarying patterns and virtual realities that accompany human life. Migration can also present an alienation effect from traditionalisms and determinants that define human lives. In the literary oeuvres of these selected women writers, migration is only in part tied to the traditional concepts related to migrants, with the loss of roots and rupture with the place of origin. In the selected literary oeuvres, migrants are rarely considered to be uprooted and unable to find their anchor or confidently start a new chapter in their lives in a new environment. Migration is mostly connected with the possibility of expanding the horizon of insights and perspectives of looking at life, with the acceptance of its complexities, ambiguities and incompleteness. Mostly, the experience of migration is seen as a new, creative option, which opens and examines the wide range of other issues and dilemmas. The condition of uprooted loss has traditionally negative connotations, but in the selected oeuvres vagueness and fluidity allow a real insight into the real, complex nature of life and human existence.
