Abstract:The following work is an examination of the 1981 Uprising in Kosovo, a watershed moment in the history of Yugoslavia. The story of this event will be detailed in the following pages through a narrative history of the uprising and the incidents that surrounded it. Along with the historical description, the uprising will be analyzed within the framework of Rogers Brubaker’s theory on nation as form, category, and event and through his triadic relational nexus. Using this view of the nation as a shell within which the discourse of the events took place, articles from Albania’s Zëri i popullit and Yugoslavia’s Borba will be analyzed using Ruth Wodak’s negative out-group qualities from her discourse-historical approach and Tae-Sop Lim’s and John Bower’s analytical framework for facework. Through these methods, a more robust and variegated understanding of the 1981 Kosovar Uprising, its place in the dissolution of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, and the growing destabilization of the region in the 1990s can be reached.
