Bernard Stiegler is a French philosopher, the head of Institut de recherche et d’innovation. He was also the program director at Collège international de philosophie, professor at Université de Compiègne, deputy director of Institut National de l’Audiovisuel, director of IRCAM and director of Department of Cultural Development at Centre Pompidou. He is also the director of Ars Industrialis, an association founded in 2006. He is an author of numerous books and articles focusing on the research into philosophy of technology and the possibility of the political and social response to Anthropocene.

In his Analysis of Guterres’ Speeches, Bernard Stiegler writes that “(f)aced with systemic risks, we need to invent systemic replies”. This is “possible only as a protection, cultivation and participation of knowledge”. The “systemic risks” he refers to are the multiple and complex ecological, economical and political crises spreading through the globe, and accelerating, as a result of a flawed international institutional design which allowed for the conditions conducive to such compound threats and injustices to flourish. How do we change the system? What are the structural, functional and fundamental redesigns necessary for the cosmopolitical community to emerge and for the cooperative heterogeneity to thrive? For one, as we now know, the true progress cannot rely exclusively on technological advancement. While developing and diversifying the emancipatory technological solutions constitutes the necessary aspect of our transition into the post-anthropocene world, the nurture of such knowledge is impossible if it is undertaken without deep inquiries into the social, political, economic and epistemic projects which can give rise to what Dan Ross refers to as “the right kind of crazy for the future”. As Stiegler writes: “A new type on innovation is needed”. This Palace is dedicated to the search for this new type of innovation, this right kind of crazy, these “multiplicities of design” (Geert Lovink) – to the discoveries of the diverse and the intricate systemic elements of our truly liberatory future.

Lecture by Prof. Bernard Stiegler will take place at the Moise Palace on October 1st, 2019, starting at 12.00 pm.

Conference Rationale and Background

The main objective of the international conference is to inaugurate a profound debate among relevant stakeholders on the impact of Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) and, more specifically, cultural heritage, on socio-economic development and preservation of democratic values. Through appropriate discursive forms, it will reflect and debate upon the future of Research and Innovation (R&I) in SSH in relation to global and local communities, especially relating to the interaction of culture, open science, creative industries and disruptive technologies, as well as the implications of these on sustainability, future jobs and democratic values.

The conference will bring together experts from all around Europe, from the academia and non-governmental sector, foundations and other stakeholders relevant forfuture R&I in SSH, policy makers, local authorities, as well as partakers and contributors to Rijeka 2020 – European Capital of Culture program. The aim is to present research results and develop substantial discussions on the topics of Cultural Heritage and the future of research and development in SSH in a rapidly changing world characterised by digitization, mobility, brain circulation, inequalities and technological advancement, and their repercussions on the socio-economic context and the democratic values.

The conference will tackle the role of higher education (universities) as a space for sustenance of civic responsibility, teaching of ethical behaviour and dialogue with the wider community based on mutual trust, transparency of actions and an open mind-set responsive to democratic values.

The conference will support and promote the thorough development of Open Science in European research area. The Conference is based on five pillars as thematic foci of the Call for Papers.

We invite papers which address one of the three thematic SSH pillars or one of the two additional horizontal comprehensive pillars that reflect the SSH policies and cooperation with governments, the civil society and business.

Towards a Harmony of Epistemic and Political Virtues: Seminar on Snježana Prijić-Samaržija’s “Democracy and Truth”

Belgrade, June 20, 2019 at 3.00 pm
Venue: Institute for Philosophy and Social Theory (IFDT)

Address: Kraljice Natalije 45, 11000 Belgrade (4th Floor, Conference Room)

Snježana Prijić-Samaržija’s Democracy and Truth: The Conflict Between Political and Epistemic Virtues (2018) has a two-fold task. First, the book, generally speaking, aims to justify the application of epistemology to real-world situations in order to improve societal epistemic processes and the assessment of socially held beliefs. Second, and more specifically, the book grapples with a pertinent dilemma: when assessing social practices, institutions, and systems, should we sacrifice epistemic virtues for ethical and political virtues or vice versa? Prijić-Samaržija rejects this reasoning as a case of a false dilemma and offers a hybrid proposal which can satisfy, at the same time, political requirements and produce beliefs/judgments/decisions of high epistemic quality. She then argues that her preferred hybrid model – reliability democracy – has the highest likelihood of producing evaluations equally respectful of both values.

Participants: Petar Bojanić (University of Belgrade, Institute for Philosophy and Social Theory), Igor Cvejić (University of Belgrade, Institute for Philosophy and Social Theory), Vedran Džihić (Austrian Institute for International Affairs and University of Vienna, Institute for Political Sciences), Biljana Đorđević (University of Belgrade, Faculty of Political Sciences), Aleksandar Fatić (University of Belgrade, Institute for Philosophy and Social Theory), Marjan Ivković (University of Belgrade, Institute for Philosophy and Social Theory), Ivana Janković (University of Belgrade, Faculty of Philosophy), Marko Konjović (University of Belgrade, Institute for Philosophy and Social Theory), Ivan Mladenović (University of Belgrade, Faculty of Philosophy), Srđan Prodanović (University of Belgrade, Institute for Philosophy and Social Theory), Bojana Radovanović (University of Belgrade, Institute for Philosophy and Social Theory), Smail Rapić (University of Wuppertal, Department of Philosophy) and Marko Luka Zubčić (University of Rijeka, Faculty of Philosophy)

Moderators: Marko Konjović (University of Belgrade, Institute for Philosophy and Social Theory) Bojana Radovanović (University of Belgrade, Institute for Philosophy and Social Theory)

Snježana Prijić-Samaržija is currently the Rector of the University of Rijeka as well as a Full Professor at the Department of Philosophy, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Rijeka. She received her BA Degree from the University of Belgrade, her Master Degree from the University of Ljubljana, and her PhD Degree from the University of Zagreb, all in philosophy. Prijić-Samaržija is the author of six books, such as: “Oko i svijet” [Eye and the World] (1995), “Društvo i spoznaja” [Society and Cognition] (2000), “Praktična etika” [Practical Ethics] (2007, with Elvio Baccarini), and “Antička i novovjekovna epistemologija” [Ancient and Modern Epistemology] (2011, with Ana Gavran Miloš).

“Cities and regions in flux after border change: Reconfiguring the frontier, reshaping memory and visualizing change in twentieth century Europe”

International Conference

Rijeka, Croatia, 10-12 July 2019

Venue: Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Rijeka

Address: Sveučilišna avenija 4, 51000 Rijeka (Room 230, 2nd Floor)

Since the end of the First World War, cities and regions in Europe, particularly in the eastern half of the continent, witnessed frequent changes in borders. Previous research on border change and territorial transfers has focused on the actions of nationalizing regimes after the 1919 Paris conference, as well as the post-1945 transfer of territories in East-Central Europe and ensuing flight, expulsions and repopulation programs (Rieber 2000, Ther and Siljak 2001, Ballinger 2003, Crainz Pupo and Salvatici 2008, Snyder 2010, Ferrara 2011, Thum 2011, Reinisch, and White 2011, Ferrara and Pianciola 2012, Service 2013, Sezneva 2013). Recent research has analysed how states appropriated cities and regions they gained from neighbours (Karch 2018), and, in the case of socialist states, used urban remodelling as an opportunity to showcase socialist modernization projects, as occurred in Lviv, Ukraine (Amar 2015) and in Yugoslavia (Kulić and Mrduljaš 2012, Le Normand 2014). While research on transferred cities and territories has tended to see border changes primarily as ruptures tearing people from their old lives and cutting cities off from their previous national frameworks, this emphasis is called into question by scholarship by geographers and sociologists who comprehend cities not as discrete entities but as nodes within regional, national and global networks. From this perspective, cities are spaces in which flows of different types (goods, labour, capital, information) enter, converge, and exit, connecting these cities with other circuits and points across the globe (Massey 1991, Castells 2002, Harvey 2003).

This conference seeks contributions that showcase research on history, memory, and mapping tools in the context of European border changes in the twentieth century. We are interested in highlighting research on the experience of cities and regions that have undergone border changes in the twentieth century in order to showcase histories of transition, to examine the reshaping of local and regional memory practices, and to explore the variety of research methods that might be used to conceptualize and visualize change.

Keynote speakers:

Dominique Kirchner Reill, Associate Professor, University of Miami, author of Nationalists Who Feared the Nation: Adriatic Multi-Nationalism in Habsburg Dalmatia, Trieste, and Venice (Stanford University Press, 2012.) presenting her new book The Fiume Crisis: Life in the Wake of the Habsburg Empire.    

Anne Kelly Knowles, McBride Professor of History at the University of Maine, editor of Placing History: How Maps, Spatial Data, and GIS Are Changing Historical Scholarship (2008) and Geographies of the Holocaust (2014), Guggenheim fellow (2015).

Brendan Karch, Assistant Professor of History at Louisiana State University, author of Nation and Loyalty in a German-Polish Borderland: Upper Silesia, 1848–1960 (Cambridge University Press, 2018)

Olga Sezneva, Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Amsterdam, whose work has examined the connection between the urban built environment and social memory (particularly in the case of Kaliningrad/Königsberg), human mobility, and digital technologies; part of the artistic collective Moving Matters Traveling Workshop.

Organisers: The conference is organized by the Univeristy of Rijeka, Centre for Advanced Studies – South East Europe, with the support of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada-funded project Rijeka in Flux: Borders and Urban Change after World War II, the Memoryscapes project’s Seasons of Power flagship programme for Rijeka 2020 – European Capital of Culture, and the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity Research Group, “Empires of Memory: The Cultural Politics of Historicity in Former Habsburg and Ottoman Cities”.

Seminar with Ivan Flis


Are Open Science practices the solution? The case of psychology’s replication crisis

“The seminar takes a critical look at the role of Open Science practices and advocacy within the ongoing replication crisis in psychology. Open Science is a multifaceted interdisciplinary movement that spans the modern university, within which scientists themselves criticize established scientific practices of data collection and storage, development and sharing of analysis pipelines, publication and dissemination of research papers, and the so-called “incentive structures” that organize the hiring and advancement of faculty in Global Northern academia. Many of the Open Science interventions are in practice a type of a digital revolution within the academic system, the paradigmatic example being the push for Open Access in scholarly publishing. Reform centered around Open Science practices is proposed as a solution to the ongoing replication crisis in scientific psychology. In this seminar, I will discuss the impact of Open Science reform while taking into account the intellectual and institutional history of psychology as a science, in order to draw some epistemologically relevant conclusions about the ongoing crisis and its proposed solutions.”

Ivan Flis is a research fellow at UNIRI CAS SEE in Rijeka. He recently obtained his PhD in History and Philosophy of Science at Utrecht University in the Netherlands and before that an MA in Psychology at the University of Zagreb. In his PhD thesis, he researched the role of methodological standardization in psychology’s disciplinary formation in the late 20th century, from the perspective of conventional history of science and scientometrics. His main areas of research are history of 20th century psychology, philosophy of social science, and digital humanities.

The seminar was held on May 15, 2019 at the University of Rijeka Campus, Sveučilišni odjeli building (Ul. Radmile Matejčić 2, 51000 Rijeka).


 

Seminar with Bojan Baća


Digitalization of the Marketplace of (Reactionary) Ideas: The Alt-Right as a Political Ideology, Social Movement, and Counter-Culture

 “The seminar explores the emerging phenomenon of the alternative right, or the “Alt-Right”, as a multidimensional phenomenon – that is, as a political ideology, social movement, and counter-culture. By taking a position of critical sociology, this seminar presents preliminary findings on how the digital has molded and steered the political towards the right on social media platforms. This occurs at the level of various reactionary ideas, through networking of diverse right-wing collectives, as well as through the spread of novel cultural practices of “fighting the PC culture and SJWs”. The focus is specifically on how the digitalization of the public sphere – fostered by the rapid rise of new technologies and social networking platforms – has increased and shaped political engagement of the reactionary segments of global civil society.”

Bojan Baća is an Ernst Mach Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Southeast European Studies, University of Graz and a Junior Research Fellow at the Center for Advanced Studies – South East Europe at the University of Rijeka. He received his PhD in Sociology from York University, to which he still remains affiliated as an external research associate in the Global Digital Citizenship Lab. In 2015–2016, he was a Swedish Institute Visiting Doctoral Fellow at the University of Gothenburg, specializing in post-socialist civil society and social movement research. Baća continues to explore the relationship between socio-economic/political transformation and civic engagement in post-socialist societies and, more broadly, the role of activist citizenship and contentious politics in democratization processes. His recent work on the topic was published in academic journals such as Antipode and Europe-Asia Studies, as well as in two edited volumes: Changing Youth Values in Southeast Europe: Beyond Ethnicity (Routledge, 2017) and The Democratic Potential of Emerging Social Movements in Southeastern Europe (Friedrich Ebert Stiftung, 2017). As a fellow at the Center for Advanced Studies, Baća is conducting a research project that focuses on English-speaking digital public sphere in the “post-truth era”, in which he explores how digitalization of the “marketplace of ideas” is articulating, mobilizing, and legitimizing political ideas, social actors, and cultural practices that are spreading disinformation and promoting anti-democratic sentiments.

The seminar was held on May 15, 2019 at the University of Rijeka Campus, Sveučilišni odjeli building (Ul. Radmile Matejčić 2, 51000 Rijeka).
