Fabio Giomi, Making Muslim Women European, Voluntary Associations, Islam, And Gender in Post-Ottoman Bosnia and Yugoslavia (1878–1941), Budapest, CEU Press, 2021 (410p., €90.00)

 

This social, cultural, and political history of Slavic Muslim women of the Yugoslav region in the first decades of the post-Ottoman era is the first to provide a comprehensive overview of the issues confronting these women. It is based on a study of voluntary associations (philanthropic, cultural, Islamic-traditionalist, and feminist) of the period.

It is broadly held that Muslim women were silent and relegated to a purely private space until 1945, when the communist state “unveiled” and “liberated” them from the top down. After systematic archival research in Bosnia, Croatia, Serbia, and Austria, Fabio Giomi challenges this view by showing: • How different sectors of the Yugoslav elite through association publications, imagined the role of Muslim women in post-Ottoman times, and how Muslim women took part in the construction or the contestation of these narratives. • How associa­tions employed different means in order to forge a generation of “New Muslim Women” able to cope with the post-Ottoman political and social circumstances. • And how Muslim women used the tools provided by the associations in order to pursue their own projects, aims and agendas. The insights are relevant for today’s challenges facing Muslim women in Europe. The text is illustrated with exceptional photographs.

Printemps 1993. Joaquim, vingt ans, débarque au milieu de Sarajevo assiégée. Armé de son seul appareil photo, il cherche à échapper à son enfance et à se confronter à la mort. Cette mort que vient de choisir sa jeune sœur Viviane, fatiguée d’expier dans l’anorexie un tabou familial jamais levé.

Été 2017. Joaquim apprend le décès de son père. Le temps d’un Paris-Rouen, lui reviennent en rafales les souvenirs de sa famille bourgeoise, apparemment sans défaut, verrouillée autour de son secret. En contrepoint, il revit les mois passés à Sarajevo, qui lui ont permis de se soustraire à l’emprise du passé et d’inventer sa vie. Mais peut-on réellement se libérer du fardeau familial ? Quel est, au bout du compte, le prix du non-dit ?

Un roman qui mêle la grande et la petite histoire, et interroge la façon dont l’individu peut construire, en dépit des secrets de famille, son propre rapport à la vie.

XAVIER BOUGAREL, SURVIVING EMPIRES. Islam and Nationhood in Bosnia-Herzegovina, BLOOMSBURY, 2017 (262 P., 102$)

Based on substantial fieldwork and thorough knowledge of written sources, Xavier Bougarel offers an innovative analysis of the post-Ottoman and post-Communist history of Bosnian Muslims. Islam and Nationhood in Bosnia-Herzegovina explores little-known aspects of the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, unravels the paradoxes of Bosniak national identity, and retraces the transformations of Bosnian Islam from the end of the Ottoman period to today. It offers fresh perspectives on the wars and post-war periods of the Yugoslav space, the forming of national identities and the strength of imperial legacies in Eastern Europe, and Islam’s presence in Europe.
