Nadežda Čačinovič (born 1 April 1947) is a Croatian philosopher, sociologist, comparatist, feminist and Croatian-language book author.[1][2]

She was born to Slovene parents in Budapest in 1947 where her father Rudolf Čačinovič was serving as a military attache.[3] She graduated in philosophy and comparative literature at the University of Ljubljana.[2] She subsequently studied at the University of Bonn from 1968 to 1970 where her father was serving as ambassador of Yugoslavia to West Germany. She obtained a doctorate and became a professor at the Department of Philosophy of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Zagreb, being employed there since 1976.[1][2]

She is also a member of an Advisory Board of a left-wing magazine Novi Plamen. Čačinovič was also active in left wing politics, running for parliament for the Social Democratic Action of Croatia.[4]

Since 2009 she has been the president of the Croatian P.E.N. Centre, member of International PEN.[5]

After Andrea Zlatar-Violić became Minister of Culture in the Croatian government, Čačinovič was selected by Zlatar-Violić to take her place in the ministry's Committee for Books, Publication, and Bookselling Activities on 4 July 2012.[6]
