The purpose of this workshop is to discuss the various aspects of the crisis of democracy in the WB, but with a strong accent on bottom-up tendencies to overcome it and challenge the status quo. The crisis of representative democracy has become a global issue of concern, highly debated in the EU as well, where it is tangibly manifested in a low election turnout, progressive withdrawal of citizens from the arenas of democratic participation and in the consequent rise of populism and far-right tendencies.

Seminar: Collegial Relationships: 22. maja od 15h
In this talk I discuss how the posthumous work of Roberto Bolaño, and in particular his opus magnum 2666, reflect on literary history and the crisis of modernity at the end of the millennium. I propose that the literary fascination with evil illuminates a site where Bolaño grapples with the question of history, with and against Hegelian and Marxian philosophies of history and in an effort to think how it might be experienced otherwise.
Premda savremeni grad deluje fragmentirano i nekoherentno, njegove različite forme prostorno-vremenskog organizovanja kompatibilne su jedna sa drugom, a u skladu sa dominantnim odnosima moći i oblicima proizvodnje. U tom smislu, Stavrides i Sodža, grad vide kao «arhipelag», skup ograđenih celina koje omogućavaju disciplinovanje i distribuciju tela u skladu sa stalnim zahtevom ekstrakcije profita.
