Abstract
U ovom diplomskom radu napravljena je teorijska analiza pojmova nacije, identiteta, kulturne baštine i komodifikacije. Napravljen je pregled života Nikole Tesle i kulturne baštine koja ga predstavlja, koja je stavljena u kontekst prethodno navedenih pojmova, čime smo dobili uvid na koje se načine baština Nikole Tesle može uklopiti u okvire hrvatske nacionalne baštine. Naučili smo kako se sve komodificira i na koje se sve načine može komodificirati baština Nikole Tesle, te kakve su potencijalne pozitivne i negativne posljedice te prakse. Istraženo je gdje se sve danas lik Nikole Tesle pojavljuje, te kakvu vrijednost to pridodaje njegovoj baštini, posebno gledajući iz pozicije turizma. Analiza članaka koja je urađena u sklopu istraživačkog dijela ovog rada, gdje su pregledani članci o Nikoli Tesli sa četiri različita web-news portala, iz četiri različite države, nam je dala uvid u različite tematike unutar kojih se pojavljuje Nikola Tesla i u stavove autora i čitatelja prema Tesli. Istraživanje nam je također ukazalo i na to kako mediji iz različitih država na različite načine prikazuju identitet Nikole Tesle, ukazujući na one aspekte njegovog identiteta koji odgovaraju nacionalnim narativima država unutar kojih mediji djeluju.

This thesis dealt with the theoretical analysis of the concepts of nation, identity and cultural heritage. Within this work we have reviewed the life of Nikola Tesla and cultural heritage that it represents, which was placed in the context of the concepts listed above and consequently gave us a glimpse at methods by which the heritage of Nikola Tesla can fit into the framework of Croatian national heritage. We have learned how the heritage of Nikola Tesla has been commodified, how it might be commodified, what are potential positive and negative consequences of this practice. We have explored places of occurrence of Teslas name, and what value this adds to his heritage, especially looking from the position of tourism. The analysis of articles done as a part of the research of this work, where we reviewed articles about Nikola Tesla from four different web news portals, from four different countries, has given us an insight into the various themes within which Nikola Tesla tends to appear and views that authors and readers hold about Tesla. The research has also revealed how media from different countries tends to present Teslas identity in a different ways, emphasizing those aspects of his identity that suit national narratives of the countries within which media operate.
