Additional Notes

A former resident of Srebrenica, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Dr. Halilovich is Associate Professor of Anthropology at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. He also holds a visiting appointment at UCLA. A columnist for the Bosnian news magazine DANI, he is the author of numerous works of fiction, journalism, and scholarship. His book Places of Pain: Forced Displacement, Popular Memory and Trans-Local Identities in Bosnian War-Torn Communities (New York: Berghahn Books, 2013) has been praised as “one of the most powerful accounts – the most powerful account by a survivor – of the impact of forced displacement in the wake of the Bosnian conflict.”
