CONCEPTUALISATION OF EUROPEAN CULTURAL HERITAGE, Anica Draganić

The idea of a European cultural heritage elevates the ideas of ownership and inheritance beyond the local, regional, or national frameworks and transforms the heritage sites into a source of a common European cultural identity. The aim of this course is to clarify the meanings of a European cultural heritage and critically discuss the problematic related to its foundations. How can a European cultural heritage be made sense of in relation to the ideas of universalism, cosmopolitanism, particularism, transnationalism, translocalism, transculturalism, and pan-Europeanism?

EUROPEAN IDENTITIES AND INTERCULTURAL COMMUNICATION, Dušan Ristić

By the end of this lectures, students may be able to recognize that (cultural) identity is a contested domain in which professionals, stakeholders, and communities have diverse, often conflictive perspectives. The lectures has three main academic goals: to introduce the concepts of identity, cultural heritage and intercultural communication – 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 social, cultural, historical political and other factors in the processes of formation of identity and intercultural communication. 

INTERSECTIONS OF EUROPEAN CULTURAL HISTORY 1, Anica Draganić

European culture between the Great Revolution in France and the First World War would be critically analysed through several themes of the period, from the rising nationalism of the early nineteenth century to the pessimistic views of fin de siècle.  The focus is on analysing multiple ways of interpreting European cultural identities and processes characteristic of the 19th century (secularization, global emancipation, and nationalism; issues of racial identity, political revolution, religious reconstruction, economic transformation, and social transformation) through architecture.

INTERSECTIONS OF EUROPEAN CULTURAL HISTORY 2, Dragana Konstantinović

The objective of the course is to introduce students with common and particular European contexts, which led to emergence of Modernist ideas, theories and practices across the Europe in 20th century. The course will track global trends in art, culture and architecture, European cultural exchange, trans-Atlantic influences, peculiarities of Eastern and Western culture, common values, interpretations and readings. This interconnected, multi-layered context of European culture, and socio-historical, philosophical, artistic contexts of the 20th century, will be observed as a complex infrastructure for the emergence and development of Modern architecture, art and culture. The course will enable students to observe the built environment, artistic and cultural milieu of epoch in their totality, as well as to perceive Modernist architectural heritage as a common European value, we all share. Also, the course will enable students to coreectly position and value the architectural practices of their own region, within the broader context of Modernist thoughts, ideas and practices.
