SIEF u Zagrebu

During the 2014 jubilee year SIEF not only celebrates, but also spreads its wings. On 12 September the members present in Amsterdam participated in a successful golden jubilee and reflected on SIEF’s past and future. Two months later SIEF celebrated again its birthday at the meeting of the American Folklore Society in Santa Fe. Colleagues from our American counterpart organization were invited to join SIEF and come to Zagreb, while for the first time representatives of the board of SIEF were invited to the AFS board to sound out what common ground could be found for the future.

28th Symposium of the ICTM Study Group on Ethnochoreology

The Institute of Ethnology and Folklore Research (IEF), academic host, joins with Korčula’s Tourist Board and other local representatives, to welcome all participants of the 28th symposium of the ICTM Study Group on Ethnochoreology. This is the second symposium that the IEF in Zagreb along with local hosts on Korčula have collaborated to make possible an ethnochoreology gathering on the historically rich island of Korčula, along the Adriatic coast of Croatia. In the year 2000, the 21st symposium was a record-breaking event in its attendance welcoming new dance researchers into the Study Group, and again in this 28th biennial meeting, the Study Group has another record-breaking number of participants, many of them international students participating in their first meeting, to mingle with senior members who participated in the 21st symposium.

FEMINISMS IN A TRANSNATIONAL PERSPECTIVE, 2014

Envisaged as a follow-up to the topic discussed the previous year (“Feminist Critique of Knowledge Production”), this year’s course will be devoted to the concept of “Feminist Knowledge in Action”, its pertinence and shortcomings when set against the current pressure to legitimize all intellectual work in performative terms of usefulness, functionality and practicality, let alone “efficiency, efficacy and effectiveness”

PUTOVIMA EUROPSKE NEMATERIJALNE BAŠTINE U 21. STOLJEĆU: SVETI MARTIN, SIMBOL DIJELJENJANJA

Misao vodilja međunarodnoga skupa Putovima europske nematerijalne baštine u 21. stoljeću: sveti Martin, simbol dijeljenja želi dati novo svjetlo na specifičnosti i bogatstvo nematerijalne baštine svetoga Martina u Hrvatskoj i Europi, propitujući danas odraz njegova kulta i tradicije te napose Martinov čin dijeljenja, kojim je već u 4. stoljeću naznačena neminovnost dijeljenja svih zajedničkih životnih potencijala uključujući znanje, obrazovanje i međusobno razumijevanje. Kako u naše vrijeme ponovno iščitati život svetoga Martina? Kako živjeti, razumjeti i pronositi svečevu glavnu poruku? Gdje je mjesto hrvatske baštine u kontekstu europske tradicije sv. Martina? Kako implementirati martinske vrijednosti u okviru kulturnoga itinerera danas? Sve su to pitanja koja nas okupljaju u Zagrebu i Dugom Selu ove 2013. godine.
Znanstvenici iz različitih područja humanističkih i društvenih znanosti poput etnologije, etnomuzikologije, povijesti, filozofije, teologije, filologije, ekologije, povijesti umjetnosti itd. svojim promišljanjima vječnih tema zajedništva i dijeljenja nastojat će odgovoriti na postavljena pitanja te individualno doprinijeti jačanju svijesti u očuvanju zajedničkih dobara i solidarnosti u 21. stoljeću.

IDENTITETI IZMEĐU ZBILJE I NARACIJE: VIŠESTRUKOST, MIJENE, PRIJEPORI

Dvadeset godina intenzivno se razgovara – a ujedno i pregovara – o hrvatskom identitetu iz rakursa različitih društvenih i humanističkih disciplina. Rasprave izlaze daleko izvan stručnih krugova i vode se u medijima, politici i društvu općenito, prvo potaknute formiranjem hrvatske države, a odnedavno i njezinim uspješnim pregovorima oko pridruživanja Europskoj uniji. Etnologija i kulturna antropologija je pritom u tim raspravama, pogotovo kad je riječ o javnim istupima, relativno manje prisutna od ostalih disciplina, premda ima temeljne spoznaje o temi.

FEMINISMS IN A TRANSNATIONAL PERSPECTIVE, 2013

In a world of radical political, social and economic changes, it is becoming ever more urgent to explore structural relationships of power and knowledge from feminist and transnational point of view. Women have long been excluded from academic and public life which is why they are particularly sensitive to the questions related to production of knowledge and power, the strategies of empowerment and ways of setting the public agenda.

Imagining and Doing Diaspora: Southeast European Perspectives

‘Diaspora’ has become an increasingly squishy concept: various migrant groups claim to constitute diasporas, governments address diasporas, and scholars struggle to differentiate between ‘diaspora’ as an analytical and as a practical category. The concept of diaspora also faced similar criticism such as the related ideas of nation and ethnicity – that it is liable to the dangers of ‘groupism’ and essentialism. Yet, if we do not take ‘diasporas’ as givens, this concept can produce real analytical value. Beyond that, diasporas are a fact in the sense that there are people out there in the world who believe in their existence and behave as such.
