ABSTRACT
The article presents an analysis of narratives about national belonging in Montenegro, as mirrored by the internet forum Café del Montenegro. The practices of the forum users can be understood as a specific type of cultural engagement - as an act of expressing sentiments of national affiliation. Through writing down, arguing, and negotiating meanings of the state and the nation, the forum participants produced distinct interpretations - several histories have been offered, different geographies, as well as various ethical and political views. Such collective forum writing demonstrated a persistent negotiation of the meaning of national categories in Montenegro.
