  • Letters as a Source for the Study of Literary Past

    • Authors: Nehrudin Rebihić
      Pages: 17 - 44
      Abstract: Correspondence as a source for the study of literary, cultural, and political circumstances and events in Bosnia has not received an appropriate place in the humanities and social sciences because the letters are treated exclusively in the field of privacy. However, letters are sometimes a first-class source for presenting an image of a particular period or event, especially if it is interesting to determine how a particular person or group understands events or processes in society and culture. Studying the letters would open a different perspective on some events since it is often about an "informal" form of communication. In the framework of Bosnian studies, the so-called "letters from the border/krajišnička pisma" (Muhamed Nezirović and Lejla Nakaš) have been the most comprehensively studied, with slightly fewer letters in oriental languages (Sabaheta Gačanin), while letters from the 20th century (Hamid Dizdar, Munir Šahinović, Alija Nametak, for example), unfortunately, did not receive proper valorization. In this paper, the correspondence of Alija Nametak between the two world wars will be presented. Considering the dispersed thematic content of the letters, they are grouped into several thematic units. Letters about Safvet-beg Bašagić, letters about political censorship of articles and literary and artistic works, and correspondence with Slavists throughout Europe especially stand out. The letters were linked to other texts (co-text) that were in the broadest sense related to the topics of the letters. We tried to present as much as possible the events to which the letters referred. We also pay attention to the need to renew the study of Bosnian archival and documentary material, especially in the study of the history of literature.

  • Anthological Canonizations of the Recent Bosnian-Herzegovinian Poetry

    • Authors: Aras Borić
      Pages: 45 - 62
      Abstract: This work considers the question of canon as a „place of power“ and the position of literature in relation to the ideological dictates of the so-called „social reality“. In this sense, it discusses the general social, cultural, and poetic patterns on which the canon is based, that is, the canons in the most representative anthologies of recent Bosnian-Herzegovinian poetry in the last thirty years. Understanding canonization as a model of ideological impact in the production of „literary facts“, the paper explores the attitude of anthologists towards the composite integrity of Bosnian-Herzegovinian literature and at least three poietic formulas involved in the struggle for „cultural meaning“ („poetry of re-ethnicization“, „poetry of false universalism“, „poetry of differences“). The literary canon, monolithic in socialist society and reduced by political censorship, was first nationalized and later, especially in the post-war period, decentralized and turned into alternative canons. Anthologies of Bosnian- Herzegovinian poetry distinctly follow the mentioned evolution, and in that way contribute to the stratification of the canon and the breaking of its „hegemony“.

  • Herzegovina`s Literary Portrait in Alija Nametak`s and Almin Kaplan`s
           Prose Work

    • Authors: Lejla Žujo-Marić
      Pages: 63 - 80
      Abstract: Alija Nametak and Almin Kaplan are two writers of Bosnian-Herzegovinian literature. Their prose work is defined by two separate historical periods. Alija Nametak`s prose originated in the 1930s, retaining a realistic poetic framework of storytelling and thematically entering into historical strife, folklore, and social relations amalgamated into the patriarchal way of life of Bosniak rural communities in Herzegovina. On the other hand, Almin Kaplan creates in the cultural climate of the first decades of the 21st century, combining poetic and prose expression in his literary work. Kaplan's literary world built on post-war actuality realistically depicts Bosnian society and convincingly portrays a man sandwiched between the magma of dreams and harsh reality, at the crossroads of personal and collective values, in a time of economic transition, unemployment, broken ethical values, and new globalist movements, but still burdened by the war trauma of the 1990s. Although they are separated by almost the whole century, Alija Nametak and Almin Kaplan can be connected by certain similarities that will be the backbone of this research: woven into the Herzegovinian ambiance with all its geographical, historical, social, and cultural conditions, both draw their literary motifs from the socio-cultural landscape of Herzegovina, which is a stage for small human stories and universal truths. The research corpus of this paper will be based on the novel Meho (2019) and the collection of short stories Dubravske priče (2020) by Almin Kaplan and several short stories from the collection Trava zaboravka (1966/1998) by Alija Nametak.

  • The Role of the Bosnian Oral Ballad in the Affirmation of Collective
           Historical Memory

    • Authors: Ibnel Ramić
      Pages: 81 - 100
      Abstract: Although the nature of the ballad is not inherent to deal with the so-called historical events and historical figures, we can see from some examples that this oral literary genre is not unfamiliar with topics based on real people and true events, and even those of wider social significance. The Bosniak oral ballads discussed in this paper, show that the so-called historical ballads do not fundamentally betray history, although they reshape and poetically upgrade it in detail, following the poetic requirements of the genre to which they belong. Ballads about the Morić brothers and the death of Hifzi-beg Đumišić can provide a basis for claiming that the Bosniak historical ballad is, in fact, a medium of collective historical memory and that it sometimes chronically and surprisingly accurately remembered the circumstances of the actual events of wider socio-historical importance.

  • Fragments of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Srebrenica Refugees and
           Its' Returnees

    • Authors: Nirha Efendić
      Pages: 101 - 116
      Abstract: During ethnographic research into newly established suburbs around Sarajevo, which are mainly inhabited by Srebrenica’s population who survived the persecution and genocide of 1995, I had the task of recording certain lifestyle changes of these refugees. This paper analyses the oral literary lyrical heritage of the Srebrenica region, ie. oral songs which were remembered mostly by women. Since I was myself one of those populations I relied on my personal experience that expanded my insight into more detailed knowledge, as well as the various circumstances that shaped the way of life of my respondents. On the other hand, the research aimed, among other things, to examine the role of Srebrenica women in the memory of the intangible cultural heritage of their region in recent times. First, I considered women’s self-organizing as a response to the genocide and the consequent absence of male family members and community leaders. Then I draw upon my research to consider the impact of these activities on collective attitudes toward the memory of the Srebrenicas' former spiritual life examining the presence of traditional and oral patterns in everyday life. The paper relies on interpretative and analytical methods of the science of literature.

  • The Play of Realistic and Fantastic in the Literature for Children and
           Youth of Ljubica Ostojić

    • Authors: Edina Murtić
      Pages: 117 - 136
      Abstract: The play in numerous philosophical, literary-theoretical, and artistic texts is recognized as a constituent part of life and as one of the vital determinations of a human being. This Paper perceives the play as a fundamental principle that permeates all levels of the texts in the selected examples in the literature for children and youth of Ljubica Ostojić. We will show how Ljubica Ostojić takes the play and artistic creation as a thematic-conceptual base of her texts, focusing on structural, semantic, and language aspects of its presence in the text. The analyzed texts of Ljubica Ostojić are helpful example of the accomplished correlation of the reality between the child and the world with elements of a fantastic discourse. In the parallel existence of realistic and fantastic, deconstructing the traditional children's literature, the author writes various types of texts for children and youth, which share the seeming disharmony and complexity of the structure.

  • “Not the time for fighting but for taking care of each other”:
           Portrayals of the Second World War in Two Asian-American Plays

    • Authors: Ifeta Čirić-Fazlija
      Pages: 139 - 152
      Abstract: Most of humanity’s recorded history has been indelibly marked by armed conflicts in various places around the world, yet the scale and effect of the two world wars in the first half of the twentieth century were unprecedented. Both wars remapped the geography, politics, economies, and consciousness of prior realities, and echoed deafeningly throughout the modern literatures of diverse nations. Anglophone literature overtly portrays wartime atrocities and human ordeals, and concurrently raises awareness of, and agitates against, the savagery of warfare. It does so through its poignant Trench Poetry, the anti-war novels of the Lost Generation, dramas of the Holocaust, and theater of genocide, among others. Another, relatively recent, subgenre of Anglophone drama also addresses the subject of armed conflicts and their consequences, although its critics and reviewers mostly focus on identity politics, minority and ethnic studies, and the mix of ideas and images that are features of Asian-American theater. Within it researchers can find arresting examples of how an English-speaking theater represents conflict-induced displacement and migration and other repercussions of the Second World War, while dealing with one of the most discomfiting events in recent US history. This paper examines Wakako Yamauchi’s representation of the state-controlled relocation of Asian-American citizens and their consequent experiences, in her play 12-1-A; and Velina Hasu Houston’s portrayal of the Second World War’s ideological and socio-economic repercussions in the Japanese community, in Asa Ga Kimashita (Morning Has Broken).

  • Lexicographic Processing of Orientalisms in the Bosnian-german Dictionary

    • Authors: Minka Džanko, Alma Čović-Filipović
      Pages: 155 - 180
      Abstract: This paper aims to describe lexicographic strategies for treating loanwords from Arabic, Persian, and Turkish in a productive bilingual Bosnian-German dictionary. In terms of number, stylistic and cultural features, those words significantly characterize the Bosnian language. In lexicography, they have the status of cultural-bound words with a high degree of anisomorphism. We will look into their description in existing monolingual and bilingual dictionaries as well as into their equivalents in literary translations to propose more suitable equivalents. In this paper, we focus in particular on lexicographic treatment strategies of partial and zero equivalence, taking into account the deep cultural embeddedness of Arabic, Turkish and Persian loanwords in the Bosnian language. It will be shown that specific concepts such as “tekija”, for which the German language has no word, and the existing bilingual dictionary provides an equivalent „Muslim monastery“ (Jakić & Hurm 1992: 1053), can be treated by combined strategies to obtain more suitable equivalents, such as the incorporation of the source item into the target language with an additional explanation as well as an explanatory equivalent.

  • Enforcement of the Ottoman Vilayet Law in the Districts of the Sanjak of
           Zvornik

    • Authors: Amir Krpić
      Pages: 183 - 202
      Abstract: This paper is about the implementation of the 1865/67 Ottoman Vilayet Law in the districts of the Sanjak of Zvornik. At first, there were listed those articles of the Law regarding the level of districts (kazas). After that, using the Ottoman annual reports for the Vilayet of Bosnia, there were listed the local governing institutions, services, and officials’ names for each district in the first four years after the announcement of the Vilayet Law. Based on these data, one can conclude that the Law has certainly been implemented in the districts belonging to the Sanjak of Zvornik.

  • The Dominance of the Group Position and Anti-Bosniak Prejudice in the
           Ideology of Serbian Nationalism

    • Authors: Asim Delibašić
      Pages: 205 - 232
      Abstract: Ethnic cleansing often takes the form of social revolutions involving large numbers of ordinary people. Such participation of the broad masses would be impossible without the presence of a strong ethnic prejudice that motivates a common man to contribute to this collectivist crime. Blumer's theory of group position suggests that ethnic/racial prejudice occurs as a reaction to the perception of the threat posed by the other group and assumes that prejudice must be formed of four constitutive elements: feelings of superiority, feelings of inherent distinction, feelings of special rights and privileges, and finally feelings of threat to the group's dominant position. All these feelings, according to Herbert Blumer, are in fact
      representations of another group that are being created in the long historical processes of positioning ethnic groups in society. The representation of the other group is not necessarily rooted in direct
      experience, it is rooted, above all, in the ideological image of the other. The purpose of this paper is to explore and analyze historical data and statements of influential political, religious, and intellectual figures,
      four dimensions of the representation of the Bosniak ethnonational group in the ideology of Serbian nationalism.

  • Interdisciplinarity of Sociology and Social Work – Experiences and
           Perspectives

    • Authors: Midhat Čaušević, Asim Pandžić
      Pages: 233 - 248
      Abstract: The paper discusses the need for an interdisciplinary approach in the study and understanding of society as a whole. An interdisciplinary approach through the study of sociology and social work is a necessity for both scientific approaches in the 21st century. In the first part of the paper, we talk about society and man, as well as the subject of study of sociology and social work. We emphasize that both scientific approaches, sociology, and social work, are relatively young in the context of their establishment. The basic conceptual determinants of sociology and social work are given, as well as the places of meeting and perspectives for both scientific approaches. The first part of the paper also talks about the Chicago School as a meeting place for sociology and social work, and about the causes and consequences of divergence, between sociology and social work, within the Chicago School. In the second part of the paper, we talk about the challenges in the demarcation of sociology and social work, where we emphasize the problem of partialization of scientific fields and processes present in the so-called „identification confusion“ and „jurisdiction“ of scientific fields. The content on the dialectical understanding of sociology and social work is thematic, with special reference to the branches of sociological theory – social spheres, spiritual life, and management. We emphasize that there is an inseparability in understanding between social work and sociology, especially in areas such as marriage and family, gender, age, education, deviant behavior, leisure, socialization, personality, social groups, lifestyle and health, youth, regulatory mechanisms, etc. We conclude our paper with special reference to the relationship between sociology and social work from the perspective of Bosnian society.

  • Technology and Work in Vonnegut’s Dystopia Player Piano

    • Authors: Gordana Stojić
      Pages: 249 - 268
      Abstract: Concern for human existence in a world shaped by technology is a subject of reflection in art, philosophy, and science. Unlike techno-optimism expressed in most utopias, dystopia is most often based on the idea that technological development can endanger freedom, values , and the current way of human life. The themes of dystopia are different - from the use of technology to control the population to the rule of the machine over its creator. In the novel Player Piano, Kurt Vonnegut develops a dystopian image of a society organized around automated production. The paper addresses the potential consequences of production automation on society and individuals presented in the novel - unemployment and fear of losing a job, social inequality, social position, and identity of the individual in the conditions of widespread use of machines. In the second part of the paper, these problems will be analyzed in the context of ideas developed by Marx, Anders, and other theorists who deal with the problems of labor and the social consequences of technology.

  • Deviation of Ethics in Politics and the State

    • Authors: Adnan Džafić, Amar Kozadra
      Pages: 271 - 286
      Abstract: The connection of mind and conscience (morality) gives rise to the highest degree of consciousness. Awareness is expressed as the ability to plan actions and anticipate their consequences. The common foundation of ethics and politics in ancient Greece is the idea of justice as the highest virtue in the actions of individuals. Citizens were expected to be both moral and capable of participating in politics. While ethics considers the actions of man as an individual, politics refers to mental activity in a political community of free and equal citizens. Later, the distance between ethics and politics made it impossible for justice to be the sole goal of action. Morality is reduced to the inner voice of conscience, and politics to art. Modern man seeks benefit on the outside himself, and on the inside himself he can seek conscience or forget about it. The connection between ethics and politics comes to life through the concept of responsibility. The new approach believes that ethics can no longer be limited to the moral duties of the individual. Ethics must be oriented to humanity, the future, but also beyond that: to nature, the unborn, etc. Considering morality in the context of society, following the example of ancient times, opens the way for ethical thinking in politics and the state.

  • Brčko District of B&H: Between Simulacrum and Reality

    • Authors: Enes Pašalić
      Pages: 287 - 330
      Abstract: For years, the public speech on the Brčko District of B&H, established in 2000 based on The Final Arbitration Award, has been all about political phrases that have lost all connection with reality. Therefore, it is high time to speak competently about what was the socio-cultural and political novelty made by the Final Award, which has been disintegrating for years in a way that calls into question the very survival of the District. The Final Arbitration Award produced "an area under new political jurisdiction." "Bosnian new space" can be reduced to several important characteristics. The establishment of the District created: New constitutional structure of B&H; A new political model has been established in the District (civil), as opposed to those in Bosnian entities (ethnonational); A democratic unitary government has been established, unlike the consociational government in B&H and FB&H; Consistent insistence on multiethnicity (multiculturalism) in all spheres of public life. All these elements are interconnected and form one whole, so questioning any one of them endangers the survival of the others. Unfortunately, all of these elements are questionable today. On the hand, that is thanks to the changes made to the District’s Statute by Supervisor Gregorian. On the other hand, that is thanks to the disregard of the Final Award, the Statute, and the law by local politicians. It is high time to point out all of these problems that the District faces to get the professional and political attention that this specific socio-cultural and political model deserves.

  • Effects of Euro-atlantic Integration in the Field of Traffic Policy of
           Bosnia and Herzegovina

    • Authors: Izet Hadžić
      Pages: 331 - 354
      Abstract: In this paper, we deal with the concept of transport policy, then follow the goal and development of the transport policy of the European Union. We present chronologically the measures adopted by the European Parliament in the field of transport policy (collection of taxes for the use of road infrastructure, passenger rights, road safety, the technical condition of vehicles, intelligent transport systems, road infrastructure safety, statistics, and prevention of accidents caused by alcohol and cross-border sanctioning in the field of road safety). Also, the paper analyzes the state of transport from the aspect of security in Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as how Bosnia and Herzegovina as a European country and on its path to Euro-Atlantic integration is gradually taking on obligations from the EU transport policy with the aim of progress and development.

  • Kierkegaard’s View on Existence: From Denying the Other to the
           Longing for the Other

    • Authors: Adnan Sivić, Aleksandra Golubović
      Pages: 357 - 378
      Abstract: In this paper, we will present the specific and pioneering brand of existentialism developed by Søren Kierkegaard, an immensely influential European thinker who ushered in a whole new era of philosophy. We will analyze his view of the problem of existence and, more specifically, the self as to how an individual must first become separated from others (the masses or the public), to then become a new person through faith in God, the key Other that makes one’s whole life appear as new. Kierkegaard’s influence on the further development of philosophy is almost beyond comparison, as is apparent first and foremost in existentialism and its various versions developed in the 20th century, and through these developments, it has shaped the course of philosophical thought extending far beyond the borders of Europe. In his view, the life of a human individual is tightly bound up with the relation towards the other. This requires, on the one hand, a certain denial of the other qua the others and, on the other hand, an all-encompassing turning towards and acceptance of the Other, i.e. God (as the highest degree of human accomplishment cannot be achieved without this recognition of God as the Other with the initial capital).

  • Abdolkarim Soroush’s Philosophy of Religion

    • Authors: Rusmir Šadić
      Pages: 379 - 392
      Abstract: The fundamental features of Abdolkarim Soroush’s philosophy of religion is an issue that is at the very heart of the article. Although he is one of the most important contemporary Muslim thinkers who has offered a significant contribution in the field of political philosophy, philosophy of science, sociology of knowledge, and mysticism, our focus remains on Soroush's philosophical interpretation of religion. The theory of the expansion of religious knowledge, which represents a real epistemological turn, as well as the theory of the expansion of prophetic experience, are the cornerstone of his philosophy of religion, which appears as the very key to his reformist discourse. With Fazlur Rahman (1919-1988), Isma’il Faruqi (1921-1986), Mohammad Arqouna (1928-2010), Hassan Hanafi (1935-2021), Nasr Abu Zayd (1943-2010), and Muhammad ‘Abid Jabiri (1935-2010), Abdolkarim Soroush appears as one of the most prominent contemporary Muslim neo-rationalists.

  • Rule of Law: Prevention and Promotion in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the
           European Union

    • Authors: Amela Čolić
      Pages: 395 - 416
      Abstract: The article presents the concept and origin of the ideal rule of law in the theory of law and the characteristics that depend on the quality of positive law. The welfare of the rule of law depends on law and accomplishment in human affairs. Emphasis is also placed on the practical concept of universal values and application at the national and international levels. The central thesis is that the rule of law needs to be strengthened through preventive and promotional measures as a constitutional and common European value. The reason for that is the high degree of distrust of citizens in the rule of law and specifically in the judicial system of Bosnia and Herzegovina. A weak justice system poses a risk to the rule of law and democracy. This is the cause of instability of society, lack of protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms, lack of support in socio-economic development, fight against corruption, investment, and legal security. Consequently, we are far from making progress in achieving European standards and meeting the obligations of the Stabilization and Association Agreement. In stable systems, reforms strengthen citizens' trust in their institutions. There is no such leading force in the reform processes and responsibility toward the citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The challenges for the rule of law in Bosnia Herzegovina that we are failing to deal with are justice in the service of citizens, the right to justice and a safer environment for the rule of law, ensuring integrity, efficient and independent judiciary, and weaknesses in the constitutional framework. At the EU level, respect for the rule of law is a shared responsibility of the Union's institutions and the Member States. The European Commission has prepared a review of the rule of law with measures to further strengthen it, especially in those Member States where weaknesses have been identified.

  • Aggression in International Law: The Crime of a State and Criminal
           Responsibility of an Individual

    • Authors: Enis Omerović
      Pages: 417 - 464
      Abstract: The paper covers unlawful use of force in international law by states to explore the general concept and definition of aggression in the law of state responsibility and for criminal responsibility of individuals. The genesis of the concept of aggression in the XX century is analyzed. The paper describes problems that arose in defining the aggression that accompanied the efforts to ban any threat of force and the use of force by international law provisions, which was over with adopting the United Nations Charter in 1945. The responsibility of a State for the internationally wrongful act in question was accompanied by the criminal responsibility of individuals for the same international crime. The analysis of cases before the International Court of Justice in The Hague, and the analysis of the work of the United Nations Security Council, reveal their practice in terms of which of the above authorities has priority in finding State responsibility' Equally, we seek to identify the weaknesses concerning the definition of aggression adopted as an expression of political compromise in Annex to the 1974 UN General Assembly Resolution, and whether the 2010 Kampala definition contained in the amendments to the Rome Statute may be considered inadequate in trying of the International Criminal Court to fight impunity and to participate in the prevention of future crimes of aggression through its work and actions. Ultimately, is the aggression any threat or violation of international peace and security by the state' If aggression is a true-crime of a State, does that mean that only the highest officials of the state will be criminally responsible for the crime in question'

  • Rule of Law and the Muslim World – a Brief Analysis of the Causes of
           Development of the Rule of Law in the Muslim World

    • Authors: Benjamin Nurkić, Resul Mehmedović
      Pages: 465 - 488
      Abstract: The rule of law is, along with democracy, one of the main concepts of the 21st century, while Islam is, along with Christianity, the most populous religion. On the other hand, Muslim states face the problem of accepting the rule of law as a concept that originated in the West. The paper discusses the compatibility of the rule of law and Islam as well as the reason why the rule of law is not developed in Muslim countries. The authors investigate whether the underdevelopment of the rule of law in Muslim countries is inherently related to Islam or to the socio-economic circumstances that led to it. The authors of the paper put forward the thesis that the cause of the underdevelopment of the rule of law in Muslim countries is primarily caused by socio-economic circumstances, and not because of the very concept of Islam as a religion.

  • Money Laundering Through Offshore Companies as a Way to Avoid Confiscation
           of Illegally Acquired Property

    • Authors: Kerim Topčić
      Pages: 489 - 506
      Abstract: Offshore companies often, especially in the last few years (the Panama Papers and Pandora Papers scandals), attract a lot of attention from the media and investigative journalists around the world, who invest several years of research in uncovering secret money flows of the world's most powerful people. Numerous small states and jurisdictions guarantee clients the maximum secrecy and security of their capital from tax liabilities. They also make it difficult to discover the origin of money, often acquired through illegal activities. This paper will focus on the establishment of these companies, what is their purpose and role in global financial flows, why they attract an increasing number of legal entities and individuals, the consequences of their actions on the world economy and state budgets, and international institutions that supervise the operations of offshore financial centers with the basic goal of their adjustment to global financial standards.

  • Teaching and Curriculum in Understanding of Classics of Pedagogy

    • Authors: Bojan Mirić, Mirsada Zukorlić
      Pages: 509 - 524
      Abstract: This paper presents the results of theoretical and historical research and study of ideas and thoughts of the classics of pedagogy from the XVII to the XIX century (J.A. Comenius, Jean J. Rousseau, H. Pestalozzi, J. Locke, and Johan F. Herbart). The subject of our study is a review of scientific ideas of pedagogical classics on teaching and curriculum. We see the significance of this paper in presenting the understanding of pedagogical classics on teaching and curriculum, many of which are still relevant and important today. Throughout history, teaching has grown from individual to frontal through a series of transitional forms, and its most modern form assimilates the positive achievements of previous development. When it comes to the curriculum, from the point of view of interpreting pedagogical historiography, there are curricula and programs (contents) that were studied in schools in that period. That is why we are guided by the idea that we look at modern pedagogical topics such as teaching and curriculum, from a historical aspect in the light of theories and ideas of the classics of pedagogy.

  • From Objective to Learning Outcome Through Application of Bloom's
           Taxonomy

    • Authors: Dragana R. Gavrilović-Obradović, Vujadin G. Zdravković
      Pages: 525 - 544
      Abstract: The paper describes the concepts of goal and "learning outcomes" and their mutual relations, as well as relations with similar pedagogical concepts. A systematic analysis of taxonomies of teaching tasks, goals, and outcomes, formulated by Benjamin Bloom and his associates, is attached. It represents the most commonly used classification of cognitive domains, and the mental and practical abilities of students within each domain (cognitive, affective, and psychomotor). The paper also specifies the importance of Bloom's taxonomy in formulating learning outcomes, as well as in the grading process. The second part of the paper demonstrates the application of Bloom's taxonomy on the example of Thematic teaching (theme day) which was realized in an elementary school first-grade class. Through various activities, oriented toward problem-solving or acquiring new knowledge and skills in a selected topic, the outcomes planned by the teaching and learning program for a particular grade are achieved.

  • Promoting Wisdom in the General Gymnasium Curriculum

    • Authors: Amina Smajović
      Pages: 545 - 566
      Abstract: Conflicts increasingly waged at the request of one's ego are taking on socially significant proportions. The real manifestation of ethics pays attribute to wisdom. Pedagogical activities complemented by wisdom help students use knowledge to promote the idea of the common good. Therefore, we believe that the development of wisdom should become a vital goal of upbringing and education. In the research, we tried to determine whether the components of clever thinking are integrated into the curricular content of subjects. The analysis showed that reflective, dialogical, and dialectical thinking, as components of wise thinking, are not significantly involved in the curriculum for high school. The paper aims to understand the phenomenon of wisdom, contribute to the enrichment of literature, and also provide a theoretical framework that will apply to future research. It pointed out the need to change the dominant paradigm in the teaching process and offered indications of the education of wisdom through three forms of teaching; teaching about wisdom, teaching for wisdom and teaching with wisdom.

      Pages: 567 - 586
      Abstract: The paper deals with the theory of the application of video games in teaching discuss the advantages and disadvantages of using video games as a teaching tool, as well as to raises some additional issues that require further consideration of the use of video games in the classroom. The cathode ray tube amusement device (patent US2455992A) is at the start of its ninth generation of technology. All current knowledge, skills, and innovations of the current age of civilization are united in the creation of such a device and medium when it reproduces for entertainment. Certainly, each of these media, of any kind and how much content, of which there are already more than a million (as shown by digital video game stores Steam, GOG, Google store, PlayStation network), carries a certain amount of data, all kinds of knowledge of our civilization. As video games are popular with all ages, the idea of using them for education and in-classroom automatically arises. This paper is an overview of theoretical considerations of various aspects of the application of video games in the teaching of various authors who have researched this field.

  • The Relationship Between Self-perceived and Teacher-perceived Principal
           Leadership Style

    • Authors: Gabriel Pinkas
      Pages: 587 - 608
      Abstract: This paper presents the results obtained on a sample of 467 teachers and 25 principals from elementary schools in the wider city area of Tuzla. The subject of the research was the relation between self-perceived principal leadership styles and principal leadership styles perceived by teachers. The Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ) was used to collect data; one version for principals and a different version for employees. The results obtained from the sample of respondents show no statistically significant difference between self-perceived and teacher-perceived principal leadership styles, and that the average scale values on the subscales of transformational and transactional leadership obtained on subsamples of teachers led by more transformational and less transformational principals statistically significantly vary. Correlation analysis showed that the dimensions of transformational leadership and laissez-faire leadership have a predictor value of teacher perception for principal (self) perception, with the laissez-faire style having a negative value. The probable reason for such results lies in the fact that principals with more pronounced transformational leadership characteristics have a greater ability for empathy and self-awareness, and are better at assessing their managerial strengths and weaknesses.

  • Planning, Realization and Evaluation of Team Teaching: Teachers’
           Perspective

    • Authors: Gordana M. Stepić, Daliborka R. Popović
      Pages: 609 - 630
      Abstract: Team teaching is a complex teaching system that depicts the school culture based on cooperation and mutual sharing. The research aims to consider the representation of team teaching in the first cycle of primary education, as well as the advantages and difficulties in its planning, implementation, and evaluation from the teachers’ perspective. The research sample consisted of a total of 120 teachers, 104 of whom were teachers with experience in team teaching. Data were collected using a survey questionnaire. The content analysis method was used to process the collected answers. The results show that teachers most often participate in team planning and preparation, occasionally in team implementation, and sporadically in team evaluation of teaching. Teachers presented a large number of positive characteristics regarding the implementation of team teaching, in contrast to a large number of problems regarding team planning and preparation. Teachers are rarely involved in the evaluation of team teaching. They see the advantages of team planning through the resource of ideas for teaching and preparation of teaching content, and the disadvantages through organizational and technical problems and difficulties in the functioning of the team. They see the advantages of team realization in the possibilities of professional development, better designing of the teaching process, and better student learning, while the shortcomings are expressed in the organizational and technical domain and direct work with students. Teachers generally consider the planning and preparation of team teaching concerning themselves, and the realization of team teaching is mostly about students. Creating conditions for efficient and effective planning and preparation of team teaching is a basic prerequisite for the implementation of this teaching system, according to teachers.

  • Cooperation between Preschool Institutions and Parents within Early
           Childhood Environmental Education

    • Authors: Nataša Milošević Adamović
      Pages: 631 - 650
      Abstract: The goal of this research was to explore the perceptions of cooperation between preschool institutions and parents within Early Childhood Environmental Education activities, primarily within the dimension of including parents in preschool activities. In the theoretical framework of the study, we discuss the major aspects of cooperation between families and preschool institutions and the significance of learning about the environment for the cooperation process. Many authors agree that cooperation between families and preschool institutions comprises the following dimensions: information sharing between preschool teachers and parents, including parents in preschool activities, parents’ involvement in supporting the child’s development at home, and parents’ participation in preschool institutions executive bodies. In this paper, we focus on the dimension of including parents in preschool activities through Early Childhood Environmental Education. The results show that the majority of questionnaire items exposed statistically significant differences between the perception of parents and the perception of preschool teachers when it comes to including parents in Early Childhood Environmental Education activities. We consider that a series of planned actions is necessary for including as many parents as possible in the Early Childhood Environmental Education activities. One of the main reasons for such an initiative is the veracity of such activities and the possibility for children to create and develop their creative abilities through research.

  • Factor Structure of the English Laguage Teaching Reflective Inventory
           (ELTRI) in the Serbian Educational Context

    • Authors: Borka Malčić, Stanislava Marić Jurišin
      Pages: 651 - 670
      Abstract: Teacher reflection is becoming increasingly important in cultivating a responsible, critical, and autonomous work of teachers in practice. Little research has been conducted in Serbia, and these are predominantly theoretical. There is no validation of metric tools that could be applied in researching teacher reflection. The aim of the research illustrated in the present paper is to determine to construct validation of the factor structure of the English Language Teaching Reflective Inventory(ELTRI) within the Serbian educational context among primary school teachers. The research included 310 teachers of upper-primary subjects and elementary school grade teachers. We have applied exploratory factor analysis and extracted variables and determined four factors: affective, metacognitive, cognitive, and practical elements of teacher reflection. The reliability of the first three subscales (affective, metacognitive, and cognitive) was satisfactory, while the reliability of the fourth subscale (practical element of teacher reflection) proved to be low in our research. This is possibly caused by the research sample and education context of the respondents. The conclusion is that, in our sample, Teaching Reflective Inventory (ELTRI) can be used in a reduced form when testing teacher reflection, with 23 items and three factors. The present paper also gives the authors’ recommendation of adding the practical element factor with an appropriate number of items which potentially obtain a four-factor solution to the questionnaire.

  • Reception of the Little Prince, Written by Antoine De Saint-exupery,
           Through Individualisation

    • Authors: Ivana Tasić Mitić, Amela Malićević, Boško Milovanović
      Pages: 673 - 686
      Abstract: This paper examines ideas, meanings, and motives in The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. By studying the symbols present in this literary curiosity, we point out the multiplicity of meanings that make this modern fantasy story a read for children and adults. The complexity of The Little Prince, the ambiguity of its elements, and the intertwining of motives, ideas, and messages of this paper, can be a real challenge for young readers when it comes to proper interpretation. There is a question of whether this literary work is intended for children at all' To facilitate students’ understanding and provide a complete emotional experience, we propose the application of individualized teaching, a model of work that allows each child following their intellectual, cognitive, emotional, and other abilities, to adopt a literary text and appropriately engage reception. Literature, as the art of words, should be able to provide an opportunity for recipients to get to know a literary work in their way, that is, following their abilities and sensibility, and to understand all its compositional layers.

  • A Practice-oriented Intervention Study on the Use of Conjunctional Adverbs

    • Authors: Verena Gruber, Mirjana Matea Kovač
      Pages: 687 - 706
      Abstract: Conjunctional adverbs and formulaic expressions are one of the fundamental mechanisms in the development of fluent speech, providing coherence and cohesion within discourse, but also contributing to perceived fluency or the listener’s impression of native like speech. Research has emphasized the exceptional importance of explicitly teaching those lexical units that directly affect the development of speech fluency, since they are very important in all phases during the process of speech production. The present study aims to expand the existing knowledge by providing insight into how formal teaching instruction can contribute to the automatization of different conjunctional adverbs to achieve coherence and contribute to perceived fluency. A group of eight students of German studies at the Faculty of Philosophy of Humanities and Social Sciences in Split recorded a spontaneous dialogue based on three given topics twice, before and after the intervention. The intervention included different speech tasks with the implementation of a variety of native like conjunctional adverbs (e.g., außerdem, darüber hinaus, zudem, dazu, zusätzlich, daher, nämlich, deswegen, etc.). The results of the study have mostly shown that learners tend to employ an unsatisfactory repertoire of a variety of lexical units with a narrower range of different functions. In other words, an extreme overuse of the discourse markers und and also was recorded in the first dialogue. The analysis of the second recording after the intervention displayed no changes. However, a questionnaire which was conducted after the formal instruction suggests a higher level of awareness of the necessity to develop speech fluency by implementing a wider variety of conjunctional adverbs and formulaic expressions in general.

  • Determinants of Changes in Cognitive Functioning in the Elderly

    • Authors: Katarina Mišetić, Maida Koso-Drljević, Nermin Đapo
      Pages: 709 - 726
      Abstract: Questions about cognitive aging are inherent questions about why individuals of different ages or from different subpopulations differ from each other and how these differences change over time. One of the main goals of cognitive gerontology is to describe how cognitive abilities change over time and to link these changes with brain aging. When we talk about the cognitive deterioration in the elderly, we have to consider great individual differences in cognitive functioning, that are greater than in the earlier period of life. In neurophysiology, significant progress has been made in mapping the brain areas responsible for changes in cognitive functioning; whether biological weakening will manifest in our behavior is greatly determined by life experiences and habits. Emotional stability, openness to experience, higher level of education, higher socioeconomic status, enjoyment in intellectual activities through the lifespan, and better physical and mental health are positively correlated with preserved cognitive abilities among older adults.

  • The Correlation Between Self-Esteem And Conflict Resolution in
           Students’ Romantic Partnerships

    • Authors: Slavica Blažeka Kokorić, Lucija Matković
      Pages: 727 - 744
      Abstract: Conflicts are an inevitable part of romantic partnerships. During a conflict, partners make use of various means of conflict resolution. This research aims to determine how students assess the frequency of using different styles of conflict resolution in their romantic partnerships and whether there are gender differences in this regard. Furthermore, the research aims at examining whether there is a correlation between the experience of self-esteem on one hand, and the styles and effectiveness of conflict resolution on the other hand, in students’ romantic partnerships. The research was conducted through an online survey on a sample of 157 students (101 female and 56 male students). The following measuring instruments were used in the research: Conflict Resolution Styles Inventory (Kurdek 2001), Conflicts and Problem-solving Scales (Kerig 2001), and the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (Rosenberg 1965, cited in Blažeka 2002). The results showed that in students’ romantic partnerships the most common style of conflict resolution is focused on positive problem solving, while the least common style is compliance. Gender differences in the frequency of using different styles of resolving conflict among romantic partners have not been identified. It found that persons with a higher level of self-esteem are more likely to use positive problem solving, and less likely to use the styles of compliance, withdrawal, and conflict engagement. It confirmes also that persons with a higher level of self-esteem are more likely to experience effective resolution of conflicts with romantic partners.

  • Creativity Self-assessment: Validation of the Short Scale of the Creative
           Self-concept (Sscs)

    • Authors: Gorjana Vujović, Jovana Šupić
      Pages: 745 - 762
      Abstract: Creative self-concept is a construct that refers to the self-assessment of one's creativity, and it consists of two dimensions, creative identity, and creative self-efficiency. Creative identity determines how important creative potential is to a person, and creative self-efficacy represents faith in personal creative abilities. Since the Short Scale of Creative Self-Concept (SSCS) was not validated on a sample of respondents from Bosnia and Herzegovina, this study aims to validate and verify the metric characteristics of the scale. The sample consisted of 238 students from different faculties from BiH, aged 19 to 46 (M = 22.21; SD = 3.27). Using a two-way procedure from English, 11 items that make up the SSCS scale were translated: 5 items examine creative identity, and 6 creative self-efficacy. The SSCS scale as a whole has good reliability (α = .904) as well as representativeness (KMO = .908). At the subscale level, these values are also satisfactory: for creative identity (α = .902; KMO = .871), and for creative self-efficacy (α = .823; KMO = .776). Convergent and criterion validity was confirmed by a high correlation between the total score on the SSCS scale and scores on the personality dimension Openness to Experience (r = .680) and scores on the Creativity Self-Assessment Questionnaire (r = .768). Exploratory factor analysis, with Promax rotation, retained two factors that together explain 68.03% of the variance. Confirmatory factor analysis tested three models: Model 1 - the original version of the scale with one dimension; Model 2 - the original version of the scale with two dimensions; Model 3 - the abbreviated version of the scale with two dimensions. As Model 3 (in which problematic items were omitted) was the only one with adequate matching parameters (χ2/df =3.357; CFI = .964; TLI = .948; RMSEA = .103), the metric characteristics of the shortened version of the scale were rechecked and showed that everything is satisfactory, except discrimination. The conclusion is that an abbreviated version of the scale can be applied, but also that it would be useful to conduct a new validation study in which all items from the scale would be retained, with linguistic modification of claims that were problematic in this study.

  • Democratisation and Advancement of Media Pluralism in Bosnia and
           Herzegovina Obstructive Mechanisms in Media

    • Authors: Anđela Kuprešanin Vukelić
      Pages: 765 - 784
      Abstract: The establishment and development of media pluralism is an important prerequisite for the democratization of media systems. Exposure of the media to various aspects of instrumentalization significantly limits the process of its democratization, which results in the media being inadequately differentiated, politically polarised, and commercially instrumentalized, thus narrowing the space for media organizations to act in a professional and free manner, based on public interest. The aforementioned trends point to the dominant presence and agency of obstructive mechanisms within the process of media and media systems democratization and establishment of media pluralism. Concerning the aforementioned, the paper presents mechanisms or patterns of agency that primarily obstruct the development of internal media pluralism in the media market of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Internal pluralism is especially significant for the process of successful media democratization since it is a common case that external pluralism merely serves the purpose of providing a formal cover for meeting criteria as regards plurality of media companies and their respective editorial policies. To this end, the paper identifies critical issues in media practice and journalism as a profession in Bosnia and Herzegovina, featuring them as primary aspects within the context of effective democratization and orientation towards the successful establishment of differentiation of media content at the level of individual media organizations. The level of criticality of various aspects of the media is examined from the perspective of both journalists and editors employed with respective media organizations in Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as of media managers in this media market.

  • Media Reporting on the Problem of Missing Persons in Bosnia and
           Herzegovina from the Perspective of Members of Their Families

    • Authors: Sabira Gadžo-Šašić, Safet Mušić, Anesa Agović
      Pages: 785 - 802
      Abstract: The paper theoretically elaborates on the issue of the families of missing persons in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which is still relevant after more than two and a half decades since the last war. In this regard, the text highlights the lack of relevant information on finding missing persons in Bosnia and Herzegovina during the war as the main problem facing families of missing persons. The media play an important role in the visibility and pointing out the need to solve the problem of missing persons in B&H, and often contribute to the overall picture of the public through their (non)work. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the importance and shortcomings of media reporting from the perspective of the families of missing persons in B&H. In this regard research was conducted that included 100 family members of missing persons, to examine their views on the manner and frequency of media reporting, the perception of the professional approach of journalists to whom they had the opportunity to give a statement, but also ways to improve media coverage the issue of missing persons. The conducted research revealed that the statements of family members of missing persons in the media are reported factually, mainly during the anniversary celebrations, and less investigative journalism, and that newsrooms do not have specialized journalists on this topic. According to the results of this research, we concluded that closer cooperation between the media and the Associations of Families of Missing Persons is needed to improve media reporting on the topic of missing persons in B&H. It would greatly contribute to solving this problem in society.
