More information


Interest for this area is manifold and comes both from personal motivation and professional interest. My family history directed me a great deal towards this area of research, and decision to move from Belgrade to Sarajevo only intensified importance and inevitability of these topics in my life. Study of Anthropology and Ethnology only contributed to level of interest for ways in which certain communities and smaller groups (families) create narratives about own past. Finally, love for history and politics added a crucial “spice” and made me see personal engagement in this area as political and necessary one.
