Drawing inspiration from the work of Maria Todorova, Re-Imagining the Balkans displays the breadth of Balkan Studies today in twenty-nine chapters authored by a diverse, interdisciplinary group of scholars. The volume seeks to address how to incorporate the regions of East and Southeast Europe into broader scholarly trends and epistemological currents, while retaining local and regional expertise. The contributions include new research on historical legacies, (geo)politics, generations, memory, and cultural transfers, fresh methodological and historiographical interventions, and novel pedagogical insights. Collectively, the authors display cutting-edge knowledge, orient the general reader in the state of the field, and demonstrate the importance of Southeast Europe for the study of European, transnational, and global history.
