Drawing upon survey data and literature, the lecture by Dr. Keith Doubt (Wittenberg University) shows how the inhabitants of Bosnia-Herzegovina share a social solidarity that cuts across ethnic and national identities. Despite the war from 1992 to 1995 and the political structures of the Dayton Peace Accords which reify ethnic identities, there is a cultural identity in Bosnia-Herzegovina exemplified in strong in-law kinships, the marriage custom of elopement, and the interrelation of the two rituals. 

This lecture is sponsored by the Slavic Club at OSU, with support from the Department of Slavic and East European Languages and Cultures and the Center for Slavic and East European Studies.
