Research interests

I am an anthropologist of landscape and religion, particularly interested in time and temporality, home, 'syncretic' cosmologies, agency and affect. Over the past eight years, I have conducted most of my long-term fieldwork in Bosnia, with stints of research in the Basque Country and Palestine/Israel. My book Waiting for Elijah: Time and Encounter in a Bosnian Landscape (Berghahn, 2018) delves into the postwar echoes of cosmic/bodily encounters and syncretic seasonal celebrations in the southeastern Bosnian highlands. I have also written on various other aspects of sacral landscapes, historicity and political agency of 'nonhuman' beings and ontological approaches to the question of home. For my reading of sacral landscapes in the archives of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, see 'Syncretic Debris: From Shared Bosnian Saints to the ICTY Courtroom' (Ethnoscripts, 2018).
