In my PhD thesis, I analyse to the role of site-specificity in the cultural exchange between Belfast and Sarajevo within the context of post-conflict cultures. Due to the complexity of the phenomenon of post-conflict cultures, I use a multidisciplinary approach in analysing particular instances and forms of cultural exchange between these two cities, drawing on methodologies from cultural studies, theatre and performance studies, history, sociology, conflict management, and literary studies. The analysis of the phenomena of post-conflict cultures and intercultural dialogue form the basis for my analysis of cultural exchange. In drawing conclusions from this theoretical framework, I focus on the specificity of such instances of exchange particularly related to Belfast and Sarajevo. I not only try to determine the importance of cultural exchange in the process of transformation of contemporary post-conflict cities, but also use these conclusions in initiating and improving the on-going and future projects of cultural and artistic exchange between Belfast and Sarajevo. Among quite numerous examples of cultural transfer between Belfast and Sarajevo, I have chosen to concentrate on a few case studies that are most relevant to my research. I analyse the following instances of artistic exchange between Northern Irish and Bosnian artists: the collaboration of photographers Andrej Djerkovic, Sean McKernan, and Frankie Quinn; the collaboration of visual artists Susanne Bosch, Alastair McLennan and Alma Suljevic; and the project of cross-cultural collaboration between Queen's University, Belfast and the Academy of Performing Arts, Sarajevo.
