Panel: Cyrillic in branding

The subject of language always encompasses aspects of politics, culture and identity. Writing, as an expression of language, reflects the political and cultural heritage of a nation. This discussion will explore the extent to which the Cyrillic alphabet shapes our identity. Is Cyrillic inseparable from our identity and does it contribute to our authenticity? How is the Cyrillic alphabet perceived in Serbia and how do other nations see it? How does it affect Serbia’s image? Is there a place for the Cyrillic alphabet in the modern digital age? What is the aesthetic value of the Cyrillic alphabet? These are some of the questions to be debated, and answers provided to them if possible.
