Paper focuses on the phenomenon of post-Yugoslav migrant meta-communities (particularly Serbian and Croatian diasporic communities) and the ways the so-called ‘homeland sound’ is used as the 'social capitals'. It dwells on the significant capacity of music to evoke, embody and transform the past. The paper examines the ways the conflicting past is employed and deployed, with a special emphasis on producing the new notions of its interpretations, representation and recognition.

Sluicing—TP ellipsis preceded by wh-movement—is widely assumed to fix various island violations (Ross 1967 etc.). This view, however, appears to have an obvious compatibility issue with standard approaches to islands, according to which islands are a consequence of the Phase Impenetrability Condition—when a phase is completed and spelled out, everything inside it is inaccessible to further syntactic operations. In this talk I argue there is no incompatibility between Sluicing and the phase theory as island repair is only apparent. Sluicing doesn't repair islands since islands are not crossed during the derivation of sluicing. This further means sluicing does not involve the deletion of the entire antecedent sentence, but rather the deletion of some smaller structure, crucially one where no islands were violated.

Taking the example of the Serbian fake news portal njuz.net, the lecture deals with the role and meanings of parody both in the specific, post-socialist and pre-accession context of contemporary Serbia, and in the global neoliberal context where increasing number of citizens perceives political acting as a parody of what the politics should be.
