I am a PhD candidate in Anthropology at Simon Fraser University. I completed my MA in Sociology at York University, and my BA (With Distinction) in International Studies at Simon Fraser University, with a specialization in International Security and Conflict.
I have recently returned to Vancouver after completing one year of fieldwork in Bosnia and Herzegovina. My research is an ethnography and oral history of Serb women in the siege of Sarajevo, focusing on the negotiation of everyday life in the aftermath of conflict.
- My paper won the Best Doctoral Paper Award (Balkans section) at the Association for the Study of Nationalities’ (ASN) 2019 world convention.
- I received the Edward H. and Rosamond B. Spicer Travel Award to present my research at the Society for Applied Anthropology’s (SfAA) 2019 annual conference.
- My latest interview is up on New Books in Eastern European Studies. I am talking with psychologist Alma Jeftić about her new book, Social Aspects of Memory: Stories of Victims and Perpetrators from Bosnia-Herzegovina.
