January 14, 2008

Dr. David Scott Hardin, Assistant Professor of Geography, presented a paper, “‘My Old Serb Bones Will Rest in a Croat Village’: The Conversion of Serb Settlements into Croat Ones in Croatia’s Western Slavonia,” at the American Association for the Advancement of Slavic Studies Annual Convention, held Nov. 15-18 in New Orleans. His paper addressed the finer point of his research on life in post-war Croatia to an audience of international Slavic/Balkan scholars. Dr. Hardin recently also delivered the first lecture in the renewed Longwood Faculty Colloquium Lecture Series for 2007-08. He related “the tangled history behind the Croat/Serb conflict” and discussed “the ways that Serb landscapes are deteriorating from abandonment and neglect and how Croats are beginning to lay claim to areas that once had Serb majorities or pluralities.”
