  • SCIENCE-SPIRITUALITY ANTIPODAL DEBATE – RESOLVING LONG-TIME CLASH
           THROUGH SYNCRETISM' READING FROM THE ACCIDENTAL SANTERA

    • Authors: Emmanuel Adeniyi
      Pages: 9 - 35
      Abstract: The conflict between science and spirituality is an established fact, even though some scholars dispute this reality arguing that it is rather unfashionable for contemporary academic inquiry. The present study interrogates the foregoing position, submitting that the conflict between the two fields of knowledge still subsists. It advocates the recognition of spirituality as an alternative knowledge field, despite its lack of deductive, empirical procedures. The proposition builds on the reality of existential risks threatening humanity which can be adequately tackled if the two domains collaborate to develop mechanisms for ending human misery. Using syncretism/hybridity as a conceptual touchstone, the article attempts a postcolonial reading of Irete Lazo’s The Accidental Santera (2008) to pontificate about the imperativeness of mutuality between science and spirituality, and the danger inherent in a branch of knowledge displaying hubristic, overweening attitude towards another knowledge field. The study further suggests a new order to reposition the knowledge fields.

    • Authors: Emina Lagumdzija
      Pages: 36 - 56
      Abstract: This article examines the issue of marriage in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries in Jane Austen’s Emma. The article focuses on the issue of marriage in Victorian England in general illustrated with the marriages in the novel. Emma, the protagonist, gets involved in matchmaking while, at the same time, believing that she will never get married. Furthermore, the article aims to discuss the views, status and condition of the woman in family and marriage during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and to show how Jane Austen represents these views in the novel.

  • INCOME INEQUALITY IN TODAY’S CUBA - FIELD RESEARCH ON THE CUBAN
           PEOPLE’S QUALITY OF LIFE AND INCOME STRUCTURE

    • Authors: Sandor Gyula Nagy, Sejla Almadi, Dzenita Siljak
      Pages: 57 - 91
      Abstract: Cuba has been a significant player in international and regional politics for a long while, particularly compared to its size. However, reliable data on the standard of living of its society is scarce. The literature review reflects how the Cuban state manipulated certain data forwarded to international organisations. Our objective was to implement field research and gain primary data on Cubans’ quality of life and income structure that could help to identify the extent of income inequality among the different demographic clusters in the country. We used individual questionnaires, as well as descriptive, frequency and inferential statistics. The results show varying income inequalities among the different demographic clusters and a “perverse effect” in income distribution, leading to the formation of a “parasite” stratum in Cuban society.

  • INTERNATIONALIZATION OF TERTIARY EDUCATION AS SOFT POWER BY THE
           REVISIONIST FORCES

    • Authors: Faruk Türk
      Pages: 92 - 118
      Abstract: This article covers the use of the internationalization of higher education as a soft power tool by revisionist countries in international relations. Whereas the common view of scholars is that revisionist forces tend to activate their hard power means as in the case of India about her dispute with Pakistan and Russia against Ukraine, their soft power engagement is tremendously important. While internationalization in higher education was the monopoly of the hegemonic and colonial powers previously, in recent years the progress of revisionist forces in this regard has been noted. Since soft power engagement forms vary with the stunning transformations after the millennium, internationalization of higher education is the latest trend. When examining the published data on international student mobility, we have determined that revisionist powers China, Türkiye, and Russia are among the top ten countries hosting the most international students.

  • FEMALE ACADEMICS’ ROLE IN PEACE-BUILDING, STATE-BUILDING AND GENDER
           EQUALITY IN BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA

    • Authors: Emina Jeleskovic, Almasa Mulalic
      Pages: 119 - 146
      Abstract: Twenty-seven years after the end of the war, Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) is still considered a post-conflict state dealing with war memories, genocide, socio-political divisions, and political and socio-economic challenges like ethno-nationalism, unemployment, social inequalities, a complex education system, high levels of corruption, migration, and depopulation. The article aims to investigate the role of female academics in peace-building, state-building and gender equality in Bosnia and Herzegovina. For this purpose, a survey questionnaire was distributed to female academics aiming to obtain data regarding female academic’s role in the post-conflict society, how they have contributed to peace-building processes and the future of the country, the main issues and challenges they face as women in academia, their engagement in gender equality and women empowerment activities, the ways they cope with the COVID-19 pandemic in their professional and private life, and their work-life balance. Descriptive statistics and a thematic analysis of the participants’ responses to open-ended questions were conducted. Female academics in Bosnia and Herzegovina hold that women play a pivotal role in post-conflict societies and that they should be actively engaged in peace-building and state-building processes. Women themselves should be the leaders of positive changes and female empowerment through education and by providing support to other women.

  • FROM ONE NEST TO ANOTHER: HOW DOES ATTACHMENT STYLE RELATE TO ETHNIC AND
           RELIGIOUS IN-GROUP ATTACHMENT FOR BOSNIAN-HERZEGOVINIAN YOUTH'

    • Authors: Mersiha Jusic
      Pages: 147 - 169
      Abstract: This study builds on a long-standing interest in (social) psychological outcomes of adolescent attachment styles and attachment patterns with parents. One of the outcomes I explored is in-group identification and in-group attachment, which are especially salient in the divided society of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The present cross-sectional study involved a stratified convenience sample of 735 participants (51.7 % female), aged 16 to 21 years (M= 18.72, SD=1.54). A significant positive correlation was found between current attachment style and in-group identification (r=.17, p

  • FUTURISM: VLADIMIR MAYAKOVSKI'S URBANISM AND FUTURIST OUTLOOK

    • Authors: Fuad Abdul Muttaleb
      Pages: 170 - 185
      Abstract: This article analyzes the poetry of Russian poet Vladimir Mayakovski (1893-1930), renowned as a main figure of the Russian Futurist movement. The study first introduces the futurist movement in literature that took place at the beginning of the twentieth century and locates it within formalist theory. Then, it dwells upon the characteristics of futurist poetry since this was the genre the futurists were mostly concerned with. The study moves towards its main objective by examining two characteristic poems, Morning (1912) and A Skyscraper Dissected (1929), bearing in mind the theme of urbanism which is common in the futurist literary movement. This analysis attempts to prove that Mayakovski used the theme of urbanism to criticize modern city life, unlike other futurists who used this theme to glorify it. The study will also look at an important aspect of Mayakovski’s poem About This in which he imagines life in the future. To carry out this thematic study, a critically analytical and descriptive method is used.

  • THE “AMERICAN” SKYSCRAPER: PERCEPTIONS OF THE SKYSCRAPER IN BRITISH
           MEDIA DURING THE FIRST DECADES OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY

    • Authors: Carl Haddrell
      Pages: 186 - 201
      Abstract: The absence of the skyscraper from the British skyline in the first decades of the twentieth century is notable. This paper contributes to an understanding of some of the reasons for this by analysing how perceptions of what was seen as an essentially “American” form of architecture within British contemporary media, influenced architectural practice in Britain at the time. It will be seen that apathy if not overt hostility met the calls for the skyscraper to be adopted to alleviate some of the pressing urban issues being faced in Britain, resulting in the skyscraper remaining absent from the British urban skyline.

  • HUMAN INVESTMENT IN THE HEJAZ RAILWAY PROJECT

    • Authors: Aliye Fatma Mataraci
      Pages: 202 - 214
      Abstract: This article, based on the monographs of the Hejaz Railway Project, aims to underline the significance attributed to the Hejaz Railway project not only by its initiator, the Ottoman Sultan Abdülhamid II, who referred to it as “his old dream” but for all the parties who directly or indirectly contributed to its actualization, regardless of ethnic and religious divisions, not only from the Ottoman lands but also from all over the world. To focus on the significance of the human investment in the actualization of the project, this work will start with its technicalities generously shared by the aforementioned monographs. Mainly based on Ottoman and British archival sources, these works provide a very detailed depiction of the Hejaz Railway Project. In this depiction, this work will focus on the human aspects of the project: the human investment and belief in the project despite all its hardships, scarcity of sources and resources, whether they may be financial, physical, or natural. In this regard, it may not be wrong to refer to the project as a “miracle” as well. The human investment in the Hejaz Railway Project is covered in the current related literature but not particularly focused on by any work. This work thus aims to bring the human aspect of this project to the forefront to provide a new angle on the topic.

  • THE BASIC PROBLEMS OF INTERPRETING PREAMBLES OF CONSTITUTIONS

    • Authors: Filip Novaković, Aleksej Indžić
      Pages: 215 - 243
      Abstract: In this article, we touch on the preambles of constitutions, their importance, and manner of interpretation with a purposeful analysis of these issues as the main objective of this paper. We look at constitutional law in its entirety, as well as preambular issues, to evaluate the segments of the legal act that represent its non-normative part. To significantly contribute to the understanding of the very goal of the constitution and similar acts is the most important issue of this topic. By analysing different methods of interpreting the constitution and its preamble, we provide a comprehensive account of errors in interpreting the constitution that penetrate every segment of our lives.
