      Abstract: Although it is one of the building blocks of sociological analyses, the concept of symbolic boundaries has been undergoing a second revival over the last twenty-odd years. Following in the footsteps of theoretical and empirical work by Michèle Lamont, researchers have been rethinking the potential of symbolic boundaries for additional fleshing out and elaborating in areas that have proven to be most productive. In general, its development moves in both significant scientific directions, toward enabling the transformation of basic premises into a sequence of research questions and linking them to appropriate methods, so as to include a significant portion of social reality empirically. Additionally, there are also theoretical aspirations to expand it from within, developing different aspects of it on an abstract level so as to establish a base categorical schema that would either serve to synthetize existing literature or, even more importantly, to focus further research. Of equal importance is also the attempt to compensate for the limitations of the concept of symbolic boundaries (Lamont 1992) by combining it with another, believed by its advocates to be complementary to the former, that of social relationships (“double objectivity” – Bourdieu and Wacquant 2013), in order to simultaneously examine both the social and mental structures of social differences and social stratification.

      Abstract: The focus of the paper are the possible effects of public discourse in our country during the COVID-19 pandemic, especially during the state of emergency, when care for the elderly was constantly being emphasized, along with responsibility for their lives. The paper is based on the results of several existing studies on the experiences the elderly had during the state of emergency in our country, when many of their rights were denied, and when the COVID-19 pandemic was presented as solely a “problem of the elderly”, which is why the elderly were presented as a homogenous group in the public discourse, that is, as vulnerable and powerless members of society. The aim of the paper is to view the risks of such a representation, and to indicate the need for and importance of discourse which emphasizes the heterogeneity of the elderly, and the need for synchronized activities from various institutions and organization, as well as collective and individual actors, with the aim of developing inter-generational solidarity. The conclusion is that it is important to refrain from generalizations based on age, so that any incorrect perceptions of the elderly could be altered, and thus a contribution made to the fight against ageism.

      Abstract: Especially strong or inadequate emotional reactions during in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment may affect both the success of the treatment and later mental health. This study tested the possibility of using Psychological Evaluation Test for Infertile Couples (PET) scores to identify women with psychological problems during the IVF process, so that they can be offered psychological counseling. The sample comprised 158 women, all of whom were undergoing the IVF treatment at the time of the study, and 128 women who had at least one child conceived without difficulties. All of the respondents filled in a questionnaire concerning their emotional status and coping competencies, while the PET was given only to the respondents undergoing IVF. Respondents with higher PET scores (> 30) have significantly higher Negative Affectivity and Shame in front of others, and lower Positive Affectivity and Coping competencies than the group with low PET scores (≤ 30) and women who conceived without difficulties.  Respondents with lower PET scores do not significantly differ from women who conceived without difficulties. The results obtained suggest that the PET cut-off score > 30 may be considered a reliable measure to identify women with psychological problems i.e., reaching scores of > 30 can be taken as an indicator of the need for psychological support.

      Abstract: La vie de Sofia Jovanović, femme soldat de 1912 à 1918, est restée méconnue des historiens serbes. Pourtant, elle a combattu presque toute sa vie pour la libération de sa patrie. Dans cet article, nous souhaitons mettre en lumière la vie de cette combattante restée dans l’ombre et pour ce faire, nous allons utiliser les sources historiques que nous avons collectées ainsi que les archives familiales que les arrière-petites-filles de Sofia ont mis à notre disposition.
