Landscapes of Repair project

Landscapes of Repair is a collaborative project on post-traumatic landscapes in Kosovo, arising from a partnership between the University of Sheffield and the international NGO forumZFD. The project links University of Sheffield research on post-traumatic landscapes together with forumZFD’s expertise in dealing with the past in Kosovo and the Western Balkans. Landscapes of Repair seeks to establish a collaborative platform through the involvement of local, regional and international researchers, civil society actors, local communities and artists with a focus on post-traumatic place-making and the construction, availability and transformation of public space within post-conflict Kosovo. Foregrounding the localised reclamation of spaces that have been shaped by trauma in the region, the project fosters academic research, documentation, and the articulation of civil society actors in the context of landscape repair as signifier of local, regional, and international socio-political dynamics.
