Women In The Media (And In The Charts)

The official Croatian singles chart, HRtop20, has published its chart of 2006, which actually bears quite a resemblance to any weekly chart from August/September. And isn't it funny how the Bosnian Eurovision entry comes in at no 2 on the zabavna chart, while Croatia's own representative only makes it into no 15?

Moving towards something much more heavyweight: via Bosnia Vault, MediaCentar Sarajevo has published its new book of the representation of women in print media in Bosnia, Croatia, Macedonia, Serbia, Bulgaria and Albania. Look out particularly for Danijela Majstorović and Vladimir Turjačanin's discourse analysis of images of women in Bosnian tabloids; Mima Simić's discussion of Croatian and Serbian teenage girls' magazines and their promotion of 'active heterosexuality', Sanja Sarnavka and Suzana Kunac's in-depth analysis of the Ana MagaÅ¡ murder case in Zadar; and Ivana Kronja's reflections on 'the link between political extremism and pornography' in Serbia.

The book looks pretty good! But shouldnt the translator Marina Maric-Vogel be Milena, well known and loved by all friends of T K Vogel?

Danijela Majstorović, I think she also did a 'counterpoint' documentary on trafficked women in Bosnia not too long ago...
