The relation between engagement and horizons is fraught with tensions. If we understand engagement as a social practice based on reflection on values, norms and rules of one’s own social reality and horizon as projections and representations of desired reality, it follows that engagement also needs forms of imagination, utopia and fictions. The aim of this conference is to think through this relation and argue that horizons of engagement are constitutive elements of critical thinking of a given social regime and reflection regarding their potential alternative.
What is new in/about Kosovo? New Anthropological and Cultural Approaches to Kosovo and the Kosovo Myth
This 2-hour panel discussion gathers several scholars who focus on Kosovo and the Kosovo myth. In his talk entitled „Serbophilles and Serbophobes: Glorifying and Renouncing Approach to the Kosovo Tradition“, identifies the recent proponents of these two approaches and argues that both miss the point as they both share – by large unfounded – assumption about a specifically „Serbian“ character of the Kosovo tradition and its original persistent, unchanging nationalist nature from the medieval times onwards.
The idea of this lecture is to highlight the importance of experiences - senses, memories and lifeworlds - in the production of social space. The lecture is based on an inquiry of two urban phenomena that extend the concept of urban commons - "blocks" and squats. The lecture proposes the argument that existing knowledge of urban commons can be expanded by incorporating physical and emotional experiences, everyday practices and personal memories, which are often neglected in social theory.
The time of pictures, screens and electric circuits, which through social networks and the digital media connect, and sometimes even transcend, the human psychic phenomenological space, transmute them into spheres of simulacrum (Baudrillard). Such simulacrums seem to become even more real than the empirical domains of direct physical relationships and dialogue.
Nationalism has shaped the modern world for the past two centuries, yet it has been highly adaptable and changing. The rise of nationalism in recent years in combination often with illiberalism, populism and authoritarianism around the world raises the question whether there are any new forms of nationalism or what explains the seeming success of global nationalism. The talk will explore new nationalism and discuss both new aspects and lines of continuity.
