MetadataShow full item record
In this article I will discuss interwar narratives on “Southern Serbia” in the context of music practices, specifically referring to the activities of Kosta Manojlović as music scholar, collector of folk songs, and composer. I will firstly show how narratives on “Southern Serbia” connect with prewar narratives on “Old Serbia” and what their role was in establishing new modes of governing in the territories which were annexed by the Kingdom of Serbia in the aftermath of the Balkan Wars. I will then analyze Manojlović’s writings – articles on ethnography and folk music analysis – which spanned a decade (1925–1935) and contributed to this discourse.
