The Soundscape of Change: The Reculturalization of Savamala

Ivana Medić

Abstract


In this article I analyze the reculturalization strategies implemented in Savamala, an urban quarter in central Belgrade. Recent years have witnessed many efforts to rebrand Belgrade as a safe, modern, cosmopolitan and tourist-friendly city. These initiatives transform the soundscape of Belgrade; sometimes the changes are byproducts of other developments, but sometimes, as I demonstrate using the example of Savamala, the changes in soundscape are done deliberately and with a clear purpose.
