The conflicts in once Yugoslavia during the 1990s have been studied extensively. One area that has not been explored, however, is the position of ethnic newspapers aimed at Serbian and Croatian emigrants outside of the Balkans. This paper attempts to begin to address that lack, by a study of two such newspapers which are the major papers for the Serb and the Croat readership in the United States. Those papers are the Zajednicar (Croatian-American) and the American Srbobran (Serbian American,) This paper, which is the start of a more extensive study, focuses on the first year of the conflict, in 1991. However, as indicated on the final page, the pattern set here continues today.

Currently I am an Associate Professor of Communication Studies with a focus on rhetoric and cultural studies. Along the way to this point in my biography I have studied astronomy, anthropology, English and theatre. My careers have ranged from costume designer to child welfare worker to teacher and professor. I enjoy travel, and my peregrinations have included working on an archaeological dig in northern England, climbing the Andes and straddling the equator in Equador, studying and exploring the colleges of Oxford, England and Salzburg, Austria (all with with groups of students) hopping trains through New Zealand and boats on the rivers of China. My other consuming interest is in the roots of things (I sound like a hobbit!) ranging from etymology to genealogy.
