City-making: space, culture and identity (CITID)

HRZZ 2014 – 2018

Contemporary cities are salient hubs of global, transnational, national and local political, economic, social and cultural flows and, by the same token, transformations. The project proposes a complex research outline, aiming at untangling and comprehending multiple, multilayered and interdependent (f)actors and processes that influence contemporary transformations—or city-making—in the Croatian capital, Zagreb. We have singled out two dimensions that are largely discussed as agents of change in contemporary cities: the politics of public spaces and the politics of difference.
