Query: Work on Folk Art/Industrial Design in Socialist Yugoslavia

Dear fellow H-FOLK members,

I am working on a project on the intersection of industrial design and folk arts in socialist-era Slovenia. I am aware of works that address the folk arts in former Yugoslavia and Eastern Europe; the political foundations of modern design in the former Yugoslavia; and style and socialism in the broader region. Local journals of the period include very interesting articles on state-sponsored cottage industries, which flourished in Slovenia from the early 1950s forward.

H-Mideast Politics editor interviewed on Voice of Russia

He's too modest to mention it so I will: H-Mideast Politics editor Kevin DeJesus was recently interviewed on Voice of Russia. A fine example of H-Net editors also being field experts for the networks they edit.

When he's not being sought for his expert opinion, Kevin is also getting acclimated to H-Net's new environment on the Commons (as we all are) and will soon be back in the Editor's seat on H-Mideat Politics.
