Stereotypizacja Słowiańszczyzny południowej w polskim dyskursie publicznym III Rzeczypospolitej (po 1989 roku)
MetadataShow full item record
The picture of the southern Slavic countries in the Polish public discourse after the year 1989, following the tendencies characteristic for the Euro-Atlantic discourse, became completely dominated by the context of the post-yugoslavian wars as “Balkan” wars. With the colonial Balkan image, showing the stigmatization of the western representation of the southeastern Europe we live the history (bloody wars, political intrigues, national hysteria and racial segregation) out of the picture, but in the same time we introduce the element of an chaotic aura. The contemporary Euro-Atlantic discourse is exchanging the term “Balkan” with south-eastern Europe, which in the non-colonial humanistic mission equals a purposeful “debalkanisation” of the Balkan Peninsula and its “re-europeisation”, as an element of promoting the political rules of the EU.
