Publication of the THEMATIC SESSION “Urban Futures” in Traditiones

Traditiones 51/3, 2022, brings a thematic section on urban futures edited by Saša Poljak Istenič and Jaro Veselinovič. The authors look at the issues that have emerged as central to the future of selected Slovenian cities and the efforts of their inhabitants, who agree with them and are actively working towards their realisation, who oppose them or ignore them – or who are being ignored by the cities. The articles are published in Slovene with English summary.

An article by Valentina Gulin Zrnić and Saša Poljak Istenič (translation for Narodna umjetnost 59/1, 2022) introduces the future as an object of cultural anthropological research and an analytical concept on which the following discussions are based.

Tatiana Bajuk Senčar and Saša Poljak Istenič discuss the bees in Ljubljana, which have become a symbol of a clean environment and therefore an argument for changing approaches to city management.

Jaro Veselinovič and Miha Kozorog analyse the prevailing scenarios on how Nova Gorica and neighbouring Gorica/Gorizia can build a better future as European Capital(s) of Culture.

Nina Vodopivec uses the example of Murska Sobota to raise awareness of how industrial workers as a community are denied an agency in creating the future.

Katja Hrobat Virloget looks at how unreconciled past influences imagining the future in Istrian cities.

The thematic section is complemented by an article in English on responsibility in public space by Nevena Škrbić Alempijević and Tomislav Oroz.
