OPIS PREDMETA:

Cilj ovog kolegija je ispitati neke od glavnih tema u području politike i političkih ideja putem fikcijskih narativa sjedinjavanjem politike i filma. Tim narativima ćemo pridodati političku auru odnosno dati im teorijsku podlogu. Od svojih početaka vjeruje se da je film, a posebno znanstvena fantastika, bogat podtekst za naše povijesne i aktualne političke borbe. Film aktualizira središnja politička i društvena pitanja glede naših stavova o životu općenito i zajedničkom životu s drugima, o prijetnjama našem načinu života, prelasku granica tradicije i postojećih društvenih praksi, razumijevanju neprijatelja i ljudske prirode, političkim i etičkim sporovima, idealnim institucijama ili utopijskim i distopijskim političkim vizijama. Dakle, film općenito, a posebno (znanstveno) fikcijske pripovijesti, pridonose boljem razumijevanju političkog života. Spajanjem politike i filma ovaj predmet doprinosi tradicionalnom kanonu politoloških kolegija, te stoga pruža priliku za spoznaju o naravni političkih stvari, ali iz različitih kutova. Predmet je osmišljen kako bi ojačao razumijevanje o ozbiljnosti takvih izmišljenih pripovijesti pritom izazivajući studente da izmijene svoje stajalište o žanru, odnosno da se izdignu iznad zabavne dimenzije filma/ fikcije, te da ga počnu promatrati kao političko i društveno ishodište za kritičko promišljanje o našim društvima, institucijama, opasnostima i našem razvoju. U tom smislu, ovaj predmet je o politici i političkom mišljenju, a ne o filmu kao takvom. Budući da relevantnost političko-filozofskih argumenata u filmu i fikciji ne treba istraživati isključivo u žanru znanstvene fantastike, bez obzira na plodnost tog žanra navedenom, cilj predmeta je istraživanje politike kroz film općenito. Pri tome, cilj nam je usredotočiti se na različite izvore - od političko-filozofskih tekstova do onih koji istražuju predmetnu materiju iz drugih politoloških područja poput međunarodnih odnosa, komparativne politike i javne politike - zahtijevajući od studenata da promišljaju izvan okvira.

Final exam results and Overall grades
Dear students, The results of the Final exam and the calculation of your overall grades can be found in the Reading materials section. Let me explain both. First, you can see the points from your Final. Usually, it was supposed to be 25 points in total but I decided to extend the scale to 30 while leaving the same percentages for your grades. That allowed for much more people to have better grades. It was only for this occassion as the Final was one week before it supposed to be, and on top of that this was my reward to those of you who were active and inspiring group of students. For that reason many added more points to their overall grade. And when we talk about your overall grade, as you know, it consists of four major parts - assignments, presentation, the midterm, and the final - each being 25% of your grade. On top of that I rewarded with extra points those who were engaged in disccussions, depending how often they were participating in discussions during our classes and seminars. Hence, in the last column you can see your overall percentage points from all of your grades (including discussion if this was the case) along with your overall grade from 1 to 5 reflecting our Croatian academic system of grading. You would need to apply for the exam via the system in order to get the grade. Just sign for the first official examination date. Good luck to all of you...it is for sure that this course will not be offered next year, and who knows after that, life is unpredictable...hope you've developed new lenses to approach films and society. See you around (definitely those who still have to pass the course), and those of you coming back to your countries after all, stay in touch and let me know about your interesting projects and ideas you will be working on in the future. Take care, stay safe and let the force be with you! Hrvoje Cvijanović

Final Exam today May 27th 19:00
Dear students, Just a reminder that we will have the Final exam today around 19:00 as previously discussed and agreed. You will get the questions around that time a well as the time frame specified for addressing these questions. The questions will be posted in the Reading materials section (Nastavni materijali in Croatian). This is the take-home exam and it is explected that you will provide your own responses, not those in collaboration with others. Academic honesty is assumed. Any dishonest academic behavior will be resulting in failing the exam. If you know that someone does not have the access to the Intranet, please send her/him this note as well as the questions. Of course, this person can send me the email as well and ask for the questions. Stay calm and let the force be with you! Best, Hrvoje Cvijanović

Syllabus, readings, and assignments
Dear students, Firt of all my appologies for not being able to put the syllabus and the readings as announced last week. Unfortunately, I had a couple of unexpected problems. First, my laptop died on Saturday and I had to retrive all the data to the new one as well as asking our administration to provide me with new accesses to the Intranet, and it took some time, as usual. On the other hand, due to the circumstances of war in Ukraine, I had to try to do my best to contact my friends over there and try to help them to get out from the war zones. Unfortunatelly I was able to help only one family, not the other that left stuck north from Kyiv. And that's, of course, very disturbing.   Now, since we have the class on Thursday, it's not much time but hopefully enough to make the assignment for the seminar, the assignment that is for all. You have to bring your 1 page assignment printed out to the class. Also, for those willing to make an extra assignment for one of the two films for the class, you are welcomed. It will be also counted toward your total points from assignments.  Please read the syllabus carefully. It might be confusing at first, but I think it's not really. Also, regarding your presentations. As I said during our first meeting, you have to find the film from the syllabus that you want to present about and apply for your presentation via our class email: polscifi@gmail.com  You can find in the syllabus the details how to make your choices for your presentation (3-5 films from the syllabus). We are starting with student's presentations from next week. Please make your presentation preferences until mid March and send them to the email. If you have any other question related to the class you can also write to the email.  Best, Hrvoje Cvijanovic Associate Professor

Midterm exam
Dear students, Just a reminder about the Midterm exam this Thusrday, April 14th starting at 3:30PM, namely during our regular class. On top of that I added a couple of texts that you can find with all texts altogheter (although not specifically assigned for a particular date). These texts can serve as food for thought along with the film that we had the chance to watch a few weeks ago, namely as a supplement to the discussion about modern political projects and their implementations. Best, Hrvoje Cvijanović
