Biljana Andonovski


Moritz Csáky-Stipendium 2019


Biljana Andonovski wird für ihr Forschungsprojekt Freud, Tausk, Pappenheim: Psychoanalysis, First World War and the South Slavic Context ausgezeichnet.

The aim of this research is to set up a solid archival and documentary basis for the study of the work of two generationally close Viennese psychiatrists and members of Freudian community: Viktor Tausk (1879-1919) and Martin Pappenheim (1881-1945). The study shall situate their work in a new thematic and methodological context focused on cultural implications of the presence of psychoanalysis in South Slavic region in an epoch marked by the trauma of the First World War. Regarding V. Tausk, the research accent will be on his analysis of the psychology of war deserters (on which he had delivered a lecture at the psychiatric hospital in Belgrade in 1917), as well as on his involvement in the currents of literary Modernism in the South-Slavic and broader European milieu. Concerning M. Pappenheim, whose work is far less known, the research aims at reconstructing in detail his wartime engagements along with his relations to Freud and psychoanalysis, both of which could contribute to the critical reevaluation of the rare historical source that he had provided after his conversations with the perpetrator of the Sarajevo Assassination held in Theresienstadt in 1916.
