Dominique K Reill | A Historian's Murder Trial, the Nationalism Debate, and Understanding the "Balkans"

MissedHistory by Luke Morgante

Episode notes

In this episode, Luke has a conversation with Professor of Southern European History at the University of Miami, Dominique Reill. In 2018, Reill was required to provide testimony at the murder trial of a Croatian historian after being falsely accused of luring him to the United States and away from his family. The New York City trial provided a glimpse into the lack of public understanding surrounding the roles and opportunities of modern historians.

Also discussed are an array of topics stemming from the merits of nationalism and how it has developed in the Balkans, Italy, the former Habsburg Empire and more.
