An independent international centre for advanced studies
When in 2019 we chose the topic of our next feminist course “Beyond the Ruins of Capitalism”, following the book by Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing (2015), we could not predict that this topic would be more relevant than ever before due to the multifold crisis caused by the
COVID 19 pandemic. Given that, like most international gatherings, our IUC course could not be held in Dubrovnik this May, it will exceptionally be organized virtually via Zoom digital platform, in the same time slot (May, 24-28th). We are keeping the same analytical focus, but with a new sensitivity for the isolated, vulnerable and ‘plastic’ subjects many of us are becoming these days. On the other side, we do believe that the tectonic upheavals and the threat of emergency that has shaken up neoliberal states in all parts of the world, will give a new impetus to feminist agency and give strength to the thinking of radical change. However, a desire for
radical thinking and radical social change was a common thread of all feminist seminars in Dubrovnik, which has been gathering activist women from Croatia and elsewhere in the world since 1999.
