Prishtina, shifting experiences of places in a post-conflict city

Abstract [en]

This article concerns Prishtina, the capital of Kosovo, and some of the various ways everyday perceptions and practices of the city’s different categories of residents and temporary visitors work themselves into the formation of its urban space. Different forms of construction and destruction have been formative and transformative of Prishtina, and this history is part of what goes into the ’post-conflict’ city of today. It is not merely about linear historical time, but a temporal scale of experiences, memories, the rhythms of everyday life as it ’takes place’, where relations of age, gender and ethnicity play an important  part in creating the public spaces that make up urban life.
