Personal profile

Academic Background

I am a CHASE funded doctoral researcher in the School of History. I am interested in how history is experienced by ordinary people and the construction of memory, especially in former Yugoslavia and other post-socialist states of Eastern Europe. My PhD research focuses on culturally iconic youth labour mobilisations conducted after World War II in Yugoslavia, how participants saw their role in the construction of a new country, and how these became crystallised memory constructs in Yugoslavia and its successor states. I have a particular interest in the history and culture of Bosnia-Herzegovina, and the broader position of the Balkans in contemporary understandings of european history. 

Research interests:

  • history and popular memory
  • history of emotions
  • cultural history from below
  • languages and popular cultures of eastern europe
  • history of imperialism and racialisation
