    Abstract

    In this talk Lina Džuverović will introduce a project in development which takes as the point of departure the archive of Olja Dzuverovic, the former Head of the Commission for Assistance to the Liberation Movements at the Socialist Alliance of the Working People of Yugoslavia, a Yugoslav diplomat, and a key agent in Yugoslav support and solidarity with countries undergoing the process of decolonialisation. Introducing this multifaceted and broad collection of materials ranging from conference notes, briefing documents and diplomatic correspondence to travel diaries, drawings and personal photographs, Džuverović will focus on methodological possibilities as well as challenges involved in working with archives which are positioned at the intersection of the personal and the public/official. The Olja Džuverovic’s archive has also acted as a catalyst for a broader exploration of the role of women in the Non-Aligned Movement, pointing to often foundational achievements which may have remained overlooked, and to protagonists whose actions may not yet have received sufficient visibility. Drawing on her previous work with developing archives, in this talk Dzuverovic will introduce the Olja Dzuverovic archive, asking how we may galvanise the subjective, the incongruous and the personal, in bringing archives into the public arena.
