Drinka Gojkovic

was born in Belgrade, in 1947. She translates from German and English. She is the editor-in-chief of a journal for translated literature Mostovi (Bridges), which has served as a venue for discourse critical of nationalism and war, especially during the last decade. She wrote a number of critical essays on Serbian nationalism and the question of guilt (see: “The Birth of Nationalism from the Spirit of Democracy,” in The Road to War in Serbia, ed. Nebojsa Popov, CEU Press, 2000, and “Za pocetak, skica” (First, a Sketch) in Rec (Word), No. 42, II/1998, also published in Spanish and Polish).


In 2000, the Serbian journal Rec together with radio B92 published a booklet under the title “Truths, Responsibilties, Reconciliations: The Example of Serbia”. The issues cited in the title emerge as keypoints towards building democracy in a society ravaged by long years of war. Drinka Gojkovic writes about the meaning of an answer to the call for a collective public apology by the Serb nation, and what is needed before the recognition of “collective guilt” can be achieved.
