Mapping the island

The process of Mapping the literary spots of island Mljet took place between June 2020 and June 2022. The Subject of the research was to find the remnants of the family libraries and books that were passed on from generation to generation in small island communities. Because of the specific rural characteristic of Mljet’s history, part of the research focused on oral history of the island.
The short films accompanied with introductory texts are integrated on an interactive map of the island Mljet on which all visitors to can view them and browse through different literary locations on the island. Click on the location you want to learn more about.
