COMMON AND PARTICULAR CONTEXTS OF THE SOUTH-EAST EUROPEAN MODERNIST ARCHITECTURAL HERITAGE, Dragana Konstantinović

Employing the problem approach rather than the chronological method, the concepts, subjects, projects and works of architecture are located and elaborated within social, historical, philosophical, cultural and artistic contexts of South-East Europe. Students are trained to observe the built environment surrounding them and to which they belong in its totality, and adequately formulate their own observations, positions and knowledge through skills of persuasive, systematic and expressive, particularly verbal, analysis. The objective of the subject is to provide students with extensive information on the flows of ideas, projects and works by architects, town planners and artists executed on the territory of South-East Europe, after the Second World War, which emerged as specific Modernist discourse within socialist societies. Emphasis is on research into the similarities and diversities between the employed practices in the context of the complex community of former socialist countries during their existence, social and economic transition and current positions of the same geographic territories within European Union.

CULTURAL ROUTES AS AN INSTRUMENT OF EUROPEAN INTEGRATION, Anica Draganić

Cultural routes implement in practice the basic principles of the Council of Europe: human rights, cultural democracy, cultural diversity and identity, intercultural dialogue. Considered as interactive, dynamic, and evolving processes of intercultural links that reflect the rich diversity of different cultures, concept of cultural routes would be stressed as important in the context of European integration. The aim of the course is to explain complexity and multidimensionality of the concept, given that cultural routes represent a set of tangible (cultural / natural heritage, cultural landscape) and intangible (oral traditions, social practices and rituals, traditional music, dance, crafts) components of heritage.

CULTURE, IDENTITY AND HERITAGE IN DIGITAL PERSPECTIVE, Dušan Ristić

By the end of this lectures, students may be able to identify the relations between the concepts of culture, identity and heritage. The lectures have three main academic goals: to introduce the concepts – how they are connected and articulated today and in the past; to reflect critically and examine different approaches to these concepts; to address the impact of different social factors and the importance of the digital and other public spheres. The focus of the course will be on the way the notions of culture, identity and heritage are discursively articulated in different, comparative/European contexts. During the course the attention will be on discussions and controversies related to the strategic, institutional and other social aspects of these notions. This means taking into account the variety of ethnographic examples to demonstrate how cultural heritage, identity and culture are intertwined and articulated within the digital sphere and in public spaces.
