PRESENTATION OF RESEARCH INSIGHTS within the bilateral Urban futures project – ANNOUNCEMENT

We kindly invite you to join us for the PRESENTATION OF RESEARCH INSIGHTS within the bilateral project Urban Futures: imagining and activating possibilities in turbulent times (Croatian Science Foundation and the Public Agency for Research and Innovation of the Republic of Slovenia).

The presentation will be held on Tuesday, February 13, 2024, at 1:00 PM at the Library of the Institute of Ethnology and Folklore Research (5th floor), Zagreb, Šubićeva 42.

The project leaders Valentina Gulin Zrnić and Saša Poljak Istenič, as well as project members Jasna Čapo and Mirna Tkalčić Simetić, will speak about the research insights.

This urban ethnological/cultural anthropological project is dedicated to exploring the creation of the future in selected Croatian and Slovenian cities. The syntagm “future-making” refers to a comprehensive understanding of elements connected in imagining, anticipating, and perceiving the future, as well as in the modalities of daily life and engagement expressing a specific relationship to the future. “The future” as a new(er) subject of research in ethnology and cultural anthropology is defined as culturally and contextually relative. Together with perspectives of probabilities and possibilities inherent in the perception of the future, it sets a broad framework for researching multiple urban futures – desired and undesired, official and alternative, supported or resisted, controversial, challenging, invisible, “muted,” or “stolen.”
