Biography

Azra Hromadzic is a cultural anthropologist with research interests in the anthropology of international policy in the context of peace-building and democratization.  Her book manuscript in preparation, titled “Empty Nation: Youth, Education, and Democratization in post-conflict Bosnia and Herzegovina,” is an ethnographic investigation of the internationally directed post-conflict intervention policies in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the response of local people, especially youth, to these policy efforts.  Professor Hromadzic is focusing future research on a new project which will ethnographically research aging in the context of postwar and postsocialist Bosnia and Herzegovina.  By focusing on generation, and especially aging, as an analytic with which to capture the altering circumstances surrounding post-Yugoslav responsibility and care, she hopes to portray the unique role that aging plays in shaping the fields of hope, desire, and expectations about postsocialist, postwar and European subjectivities, citizenship regimes,  identifications and futures.
