The research focuses on how individuals living in socialist Yugoslavia used media in everyday context and how this use contributed to the formation of collective imaginaries in Yugoslavian society. The main intention was to collect first-person information about how and which media interviewees as members of audiences used in that historic period, how they perceived journalists and journalistic reporting, how much they trusted the reporting, to what degree they were critical regarding the media content they received and how they perceived wider Yugoslavian society in connection to the media. The aim of the research was to gather first-person recollections into the practices of audiences by researching their memories of the past. With that in mind they wanted to enable a better understanding of how media operated in that historic era. Research was performed in the academic year 2020/2021 as a part of History of Journalism course at the undergraduate program Journalism (Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Ljubljana).
