Project duration: 2007 – 2012

Client: Ministry of Science, Education and Sports of the Republic of Croatia

Head of the program: Nada Švob-Đokić, PhD

Within the scope of the scientific programme „Promotion of Cultural Identities and the Process of Croatian Integration into the EU”, the research of the Department for culture and communications has been conducted in the scope of two long-term projects financed by the MSES since 2007:

    • Global Influences and the Local Cultural Changes (Team leader: Nada Švob-Đokić, PhD)
    • Cultural Diversity, Intercultural Communication and Digital Culture, senior researcher (Team leader: Daniela Angelina Jelinčić, PhD)

Two projects within the scope of this programme are implemented at the Faculty of Philosophy in Rijeka and Zagreb:

    • (Post)transitional Discourse: Representation, Simulation and Identification, senior researcher (Team leader: Marina Biti, PhD,  Faculty of Philosophy, University of Rijeka)
    • Nation and Representation (Team leader: Vladimir Biti, PhD, Faculty of Philosophy, University of Rijeka)

The programme combines the basic assumptions that in the transition and post-transitional period, Croatian culture and Croatian cultural identities are rapidly reconstructing and tend to integrate into the European cultural space. The process of reconstruction and integration of cultural identities is questioned from different perspectives: from internal dynamic disintegrations and recreating representative symbolic values, to the acceptance of cultural diversity as a basis for cultural affirmation, development and integration. Based on these assumptions, the line of research includes inquiry into historical perspective, the emergence and (transitional) deconstruction of Croatian cultural identity, recognition of identity of others and integration into the European cultural space
