Southeast Europe



Research covering the area of Southeast Europe has been practioned at the institute from its very beginnings, as can be seen for example in the early publication by W. Wünsch about the Serbian Guslar, or in publications by Prof. W. Suppan about folkmusic of the German speaking minorities in the area. Over the years, scientific exchange with partner institutions, the organization of symposia, several courses focusing on the topic as well as publications have brought forward this main area of research as a branch of research interests at the institute, which is currently continued by Engelbert Logar.
