'Who Sows Hunger, Reaps Rage': Precarious Labor and Popular Indignation in Bosnia-Herzegovina
About The Speaker — Larisa Kurtovic
Larisa Kurtovic, Postdoctoral Fellow, Cornell University
Larisa Kurtovic is currently the Postdoctoral Fellow in the Mellon-Sawyer Seminar on "Political Will" at Cornell University. She received her PhD in Sociocultural Anthropology from the University of California, Berkeley. Her ethnographic research in Bosnia-Herzegovina traces the transformations in activist politics and popular historical imaginaries that are arising in the aftermath of the collapse of state-socialism, nationalist wars and the unprecedented international postwar intervention. She is currently working on a book entitled Future as Predicament: Bosnia-Herzegovina and Political Action after Catastrophe. Her next project, tentatively titled Fruits of War, explores the intersections between Bosnia's dramatic levels of unemployment and processes of political (de)mobilization.
