Research Centre: Identity, Conflict and Representation
I'm University Professor in European History and Cultural Politics at the University of Derby, and Director of the Identity, Conflict and Representation Research Centre.
I'm a graduate of the School of Slavonic and East European Studies, University of London, and held a Yugoslav government scholarship as a Post-Graduate Fellow at the University of Sarajevo. In the 1980s I lectured at Exeter College of Art and Design and the University of Rennes (France). I'm a faculty member of the European Doctoral Enhancement Programme (EDEN) in Peace and Conflict Studies. I've re-visited Yugoslavia and its successor states frequently since 1995, and during the 1990s participated in six missions with the OSCE (Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe) as an election supervisor. I co-edited Politics of Identity: Migrants and Minorities in Multicultural States (Palgrave/Macmillan, 2000), Different Approaches to Peace and Conflict Research (University of Deusto, 2008) and Peace, Conflict and Identity: Multidisciplinary Approaches to Research (University of Deusto, 2009). I am currently co-editing Land and Identity (to be published by Rodopi in April 2011) and After Yugoslavia: Identities and Politics within the Successor States (to be published by Palgrave/MacMillan in 2011).
