Microstructures of Yugoslav Socialism: Croatia 1970—1990 (Microsocialism)

13.07.2022 10:00 CET Hybrid: IOS (Room 017) and online Presentations

Project presentation on case studies of Microsocialism in Croatia from 1970—1990.

Microsocialism is a four-year research project financed by the Croatian Science Foundation (HRZZ) and hosted by the Centre for Cultural and Historical Research of Socialism (CKPIS), Juraj Dobrila University of Pula. The research team is focusing on eight different themes placed in various local contexts. The case studies unravel the functioning of late Yugoslav self-managed socialism through an examination of social relations and structures as seen through the lens of social, cultural, economic and political history. The attention is particularly set on citizens in the local communities, protection of self-management, security system, local media, organisations of associated labour, cultural creativity and participation, women's activism, and war veterans.
