Eastern Europe: From Great War to Cold War
I would welcome research proposals on modern and contemporary history of South Eastern Europe. Proposals for joint supervision (with colleagues at Goldsmiths or other University of London colleges) would be welcome also, on comparative topics that would include former Yugoslavia and the Balkans.
I am currently the main supervisor for the following postgraduate MPhil/PhD student:
I have commented on historical and contemporary events in former Yugoslavia for UK and international media, including Sky News, BBC, ABC National Radio (Sydney), etc. and have written for the New Statesman, Guardian, Independent, Danas (Belgrade), THE, openDemocracy and Pescanik.net (Belgrade).
My research interests lie in the field of modern history of the Balkans, in particular political, social and cultural history of former Yugoslavia. My wider interests include the rise and development of national ideologies in nineteenth-century Europe, democracy and dictatorship in interwar Europe, and Cold War history. I am the founding director of the Centre for the Study of the Balkans. I am an editor of Contemporary European History and a convenor of the Institute of Historical Research seminar 'Rethinking Modern Europe'.
