Course Objectives The course explores the aspects of spiritual culture, living, tangible and intangible cultural heritage, including the development of literacy in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The course introduces students to the varying conceptions and meanings of Bosnian cultural heritage within different historical periods i.e. Prehistory, Greco-Roman, Medieval, Ottoman, Austro-Hungarian, and the long twentieth century coming all the way to today. Being situated on a small territory in the crossroads of varying cultures, Bosnia and Herzegovina represents not only the essence of major world civilizations, but also extreme vulnerability due to its geopolitical position. The course emphasizes the importance of politics, preservation, protection and promotion of the Bosnian cultural heritage.
