My dissertation focused on the politics of representation of the past at the former Yugoslav
countries. I analyzed how each country reflects its recent past via the length of the national
museums and private exhibitions. I made a field study at Kosovo, Bosnia, Macedonia, Croatia,
Serbia, Slovenia, Montenegro. In the light of the ongoing war in Ukraine please check my chapters
on Bosnia and Kosovo (at Dealing with the Yugoslav Past, 2017) and on Serbia (Reactivating the
past, 2015, and chapter at Multi-faced Social Transformations, 2015).

My postdoctoral research was on the internally displaced Crimean Tatars in Ukraine. I wrote
on the Ukrainian civic and national identity, Crimea, the role of Maidan. Methods: in-depth
interviews, expert interviews, discourse analysis, media analysis, participant observation. I tackled
such issues as: The Politics of Language Use (2020), Regional diversity and transformation of
national identity (2020), Cinematic Representation of Crimean Tatars (2019).
