Dear colleagues,

We invite you to the lecture entitled “Household Debt in Post-Credit Boom Croatia” by Marek Mikuš, Ph. D. from the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology in Halle. The lecture will be held as a part of the disemination activities of the Centre for Research in Social Inequalities and Sustainability (CRiSIS) of the Institute for Social Research in Zagreb.

The lecture will be held on Friday, 17th March 2017 at 1.00 PM in the Institute library at Trg kralja Tomislava 21/I.

In the past five months Marek Mikuš has conducted an anthropological research on the consequences of credit boom and financial crisis in Croatia by focusing on the households which have gotten into unfavourable or excessive debt. He will therefore within the framework of the theory of economic anthropology hold a lecture on social consequences of debt as final outcomes of the broader process of financialisation in Croatia.

Marek Mikuš earned his doctorate at the London School of Economics in 2014 with a topic in social anthropology within which he examined the role of civil society in the context of the political and economic transition of postsocialist Serbia. Also, he is staying at the Institute for Social Research in Zagreb from December 2016 till April 2017 as a visiting scientist.

Best regards,

Dinka Marinović Jerolimov
Director
