Summary/Abstract: Different views on identity politics in Ottoman Bosnia presented in doctoral dissertations by Ivo Andrić and Safvet-beg Bašagić stem from differences in historical and socio-economic experiences of each of their respective religious and confessional communities. Andrić, the one oriented towards the future, perceives Bosnia from the perspective of a newly introduced concept of Yugoslav national unity that does not value diversity. Bašagić, the one staring into the past romantically, sees Bosnia through rose-colored glasses. Both Andrić and Bašagić share distinct notions of their historical periods and allow for non-scientific influences to shape their academic discourses.
