Difference and distance in Šibenik archipelago


Migrations from and to Dalmatian islands and the Šibenik archipelago were manifold: two main emigrations (at the beginning and in the middle of the 20th century) and double immigration (colonisation in the 16-17th century and seasonal inflows of tourists in the last century).

Tourism has gradually entirely replaced various old agricultural and aqua-cultural formations. Yet, transformative patterns were quite dissimilar on the different islands like Zlarin, Žirje, Kaprije and Prvić. This might be influenced by the size, land ownership, average age, different number of settlements and bays, different infrastructure, patrons, distance of an island from the mainland, transport, communalism, state policies, watercourses etc.

The author will elaborate on these differences and diversities and will introduce a concept of “Anti-Kula”, shoving that direct relations between islanders, or dependency, are scarce or do not exist at all. The case of a government steared redistribution in the Šibenik archipelago differs from the classical Malinowski’s description of reciprocal exchange in the Pacific.
