Abstract

This article is based on an endeavor to understand what it means to “remember” a battle which happened almost 627 years ago. A couple of questions that pop up in relation to such an endeavor are:  Is it really possible to remember a battle that happened almost 627 years ago without being reminded off it? Who reminds the public off historical events/days in general? What are the means through which crowds are reminded off historical events/days? Who reminds the public off the Battle of Kosovo and through which channels? Who remembers/commemorates it and how? What is actually being remembered through the commemoration of the Battle of Kosovo? Among these questions, this work focuses on the last one: What is actually being remembered through the commemoration of the Battle of Kosovo?
