Behind open doors: social significance of food in Kosova

Supervisor(s)

Prof. Chris Tilley
Prof. Susanne Kuchler

Introduction

My research project aims to explore and analyse the social significance of food in Kosova. My question is: As the newest recognised state in the world to what extent is Kosova a "newborn" materiality? Is Kosova cuisine a "newborn" or an "oldcorn"? What is happening in the kitchens and on the tables of the "newborn" state and what does it do and mean to people there? I am exploring the construction of a newborn cuisine as a heterogeneous reassessment activity in the context of political, social and cultural change. I am currently completing my fieldwork in Prishtina.
