Forum Lecture Munich: Klaus Buchenau: Nation or Religion? Confessional conflicts in Bosnia and Herzegovina [in German]

23.06.2015 (18:15 - 20:30)

Prof. Dr. Klaus Buchenau, Professor of Southeast and East European History at Regensburg University and member of the Graduate School, will be giving a lecture on confessional conflicts in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Today, many Bosnian towns are split along religious lines. In Mostar, for example, the rivalry between Catholicism and Islam is displayed, inter alia, by sacral buildings and symbols competing to be the highest and thus most visible in town. Of what importance were religious conflicts in the Bosnian War back in 1992-1995? Which stance did the Catholic and The Serbian-Orthodox church take - and which views do they hold today?

This lecture is part of the series "Bosnien-Herzegowina. 20 Jahre nach Srebrenica und Dayton", being organised by the Graduate School and the Münchner Volkshochschule.

Venue: LMU Munich, Main Building (Geschwister-Scholl-Platz 1), Room A125. Time: 6.15 p.m. - 8.30. p.m.
