The following thesis deals with the case study of the project ''Skopje 2014'' and discursive analysis of the monuments that were built as a part of it during the period of 2010-2017. The project is important, because it includes different narratives of continuity of the Macedonian national identity, that are often mutually exclusive. The other aspect is that it undermines the Albanian presence within the Macedonian narrative. The main question concerns the monuments, as a mechanism for establishing collective memory, which preserve ethnic parallelism within Macedonia. I use the term parallelism within Macedonia, in the sense of maintenance of distinguished historical events and figures between Albanians and Macedonians. Subsequently I elaborate the relation between nationalism and collective memory, mediated through the mechanisms of the institutionalized knowledge, which is substantial for maintenance of ethnic parallelism within Macedonia.
