Bio

"Emin Eminagić, activist and translator, based between Tuzla and Tesanj, holding a BA from the University of Tuzla in English language and literature, as well as an MA in nationalism studies from Central European University in Budapest. He was one of the members and initiators of the Students' Movement/Students' Plenum Tuzla, he is one of the founders of Lijevi BiH, a small leftist political organization based in Tuzla and Sarajevo. He is also a member of the Psychoanalytic Seminar Tuzla.

My research and activist engagement is centered around issues of nationalism, collective memory and social movements and industrialization/deindustrialization processes. Specifically I am looking at the intersection between the potential of new emancipatory practices in post-Yugoslav spaces and their relation to the commons, i.e. the reactivation of the commons after the transition, whilst opposing ethno-nationalist modes of mobilization. I am grounding this in the theories of Lacanian Psychoanalysis, critical urban studies (e.g. Henri Lefebvre and David Harvey), but also contemporary theories of nationalism."
