Italian Humanist Photography from Fascism to the Cold WarMartina Caruso
, scientific monograph
Abstract: Spanning four decades of radical political and social change in Italy, this interdisciplinary study explores photography’s relationship with Italian painting, film, literature, anthropological research and international photography. Evocative and powerful, Italian social documentary photography from the 1930s to the 1960s is a rich source of cultural history, reflecting a time of dramatic change. This book shows, through a wide range of images (some published for the first time) that to fully understand the photography of this period we must take a more expansive view than scholars have applied to date, considering issues of propaganda, aesthetics, religion, national identity and international influences. By setting Italian photography against a backdrop of social documentary and giving it a distinctive place in the global history of photography, this exciting volume of original research is of interest to art historians and scholars of Italian and visual culture studies.
Keywords: History of photography, documentary photography, social photography, humanist photography, painting, film, literature, anthropology, fascism, antifascism, Mussolini, resistance, partisans, masculinity, peasants, ruralism, religion, Catholicism, Carlo Levi, Christ Stopped at Eboli, propaganda, national identity, aesthetics, politics

European Film Co-productions with a Focus on Southeastern EuropeBoris Matić
, 2022, master's thesis
Abstract: In this master thesis I shall deal with European film co-productions with an emphasis on the functioning of this form of film production in 6 countries of Southeast Europe. Starting from
defining the concept of co-productions and their types, short history, agreements that provide the legal framework for their establishment all the way to sources of funding from European
public national and supranational funds, broadcasters and production incentive systems. In other words, in this thesis I explain how this joint production adventure works in Europe, as
well as in the surrounding countries where I myself work as a film producer. The starting point of the paper is that the authors and producers hail from countries with low audiovisual capacity,
and due to high film production prices and lack of funding sources in these countries, they are almost forced to turn to international co-productions for more ambitious film projects. Through
the analysis and production study of Father, I speak about the application of the co-production model in filmmaking and the use of almost all types of available European sources of financial
closure, which is a successful example of cooperation between producers and filmmakers and collaborators from several European countries. In the practical part of my master’s thesis, I
briefly deal with the making of my short fiction film Thursday.
Keywords: film, production, co-production, southeast Europe, region, agreements, sources of funding, funds, national, supranational, budget

, 2017, published scientific conference contribution
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to discuss and argue on the need of an assessment framework for the development of E-Governance services & practices in various states of India. This can be used to compare the states against each other so as to evaluate their status as per the national & international standards. The study is exploratory in nature as it develops arguments over an Index based on combination of theory, past literature and international reports w.r.t. E-Governance services and associated available infrastructure. It considers research papers from 2000-2015 and major reports on E-Governance after 2006. The need to develop an index based on different parameters is identified. The major areas to be covered up in the development index are online availability and performance of E-Governance service, telecommunication infrastructure, human capital, infrastructure availability and electronic participation by the citizens. Other areas are security and ease of access of the services. Development Index formulation will suggest that the development status for various Indian states, w.r.t. E-Governance, is based on lot of factors like the geographical location, demographic distribution, quality of human resources, and infrastructure present. A state merely having large number of E-Governance services does not become an automatic choice of best state for E-Governance development in the country. The state should be able to justify the overall development rather than being beneficial to just a small section of its population. Indian national E-Governance plan needs to assess the weak zones of the country so as to take initiatives to upgrade them and bid for overall higher ranking in the E-Governance Development Index of United Nations. There is no overall quantitative assessment framework available for E-Governance development in India as of now. So this research is novel with respect to E-Governance development and its assessment.

Christianization and Love of Homeland in Prešeren and Bevk : A Comparison of Motifs and Values in The Baptism on the Savica and Umirajoči bog Triglav (The Dying God Triglav)Zoran Božič
, 2019, original scientific article
Abstract: Both texts were created during pivotal moments of Slovene history: Prešeren’s poem at a time of German political, economic, and cultural supremacy and newly emerging demands for a united Slovenia, and Bevk’s during the time of Italian fascism and the occupation of the Slovene Primorska region.
At first glance, Prešeren’s poetry of high Romanticism and Bevk’s supposedly trivial work have nothing in common apart from the topic of paganism and Christianity. However, they both convey a hidden message that could not be stated outright due to the censorship policies of the authorities at the time, to condemnation of aggressive foreign rulers, to appeals to national unity, to heightened patriotic consciousness, and to a relationship with nature that establishes the here and now as the highest value, and not the hereafter. The comparison and interpretation presented here sees in Bevk’s work a direct connection to Prešeren’s poem, its thematic continuation, temporal adaptation, and interpretation.
Keywords: Christianization, France Prešeren, France Bevk, national awareness, paganism, Christianity, romantic poem, historical story, censorship, The Baptism on the Savica, The Dying God Triglav, Bled, Bohinj, Kobarid

Abstract: The report consist of individual test-run reports by participating teachers and consortium-level observers that gathered qualitative and quantitative data through short interviews, surveys and QA questionnaires mostly with students, but also among themselves. A joint evaluation is delivered and a “lessons learned” compendium published, offered digitally through the project’s dissemination system (mostly newsletter and website-promotion), and spread locally through the teaching communities – also partly entering the professional article as “experience report” (see next deliverable). These reports and the “lessons learned” were discussed and confirmed in the below structure at the September 2013 meeting, organised by P4. Notably, a total of three sceintific or porfessional articles were (to be) published (as separate deliverables) refereing to the lessons learned in this project, refering to the summative experience of the project.

The Baptism at the Savica by France Prešeren as a Successful Attempt to Outwit Censorship: a Romantic Confession of a Defeated Person, a Member of an Unfree NationZoran Božič
, 2014, original scientific article
Abstract: Baptism at the Savica, an epic about the loss of Slovenian independence, can also be understood as a successful attempt by France Prešeren to outwit censors and use the form of a historic tale as a metaphor for expressing the content which, due to censorship, had to be omitted from his elegy Dem Andenken des Matthias Čop. Such an approach can help us resolve several
apparent contradictions, shown in the interpretative history of the Baptism, such as the problem of Prešeren’s own characterisation of the poem in his letter to Čelakovský, or the question of Črtomir’s conversion at the end of the third part of this epic poem.In the 20th century, several interpretations came into being that understood Črtomir’s conversion to Christianity as an inevitable choice made by Slovenians in favour of a stronger, uniquely prospective Western culture circle, which serves as justification for Črtomir’s renunciation of freedom-loving Slovenianhood. According to the new understanding of The Baptism at the Savica, there are two Črtomirs, one is the hero and the other is the defeated one (the former, as he himself would like to be, is only an illusion by Prešeren, and the latter, as he indeed is, is the one with whom the poet completely
identifies himself), and the final message of the epic poem is understood as a condemnation of national inequality.
