Bio

"Jasmina Husanovic-Pehar is Associate Professor of Cultural Studies at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina. She received her PhD from the University of Wales, Aberystwyth, UK in 2003. She has been a member and initiator of various research and activist platforms in B&H and internationally, concerning issues of cultural production, knowledge production and social change.

My activist and research interests are in the field of critical pedagogies, politics of witnessing, solidarity and equality, and analysis of gender and class relations in cultural production and everyday life. Starting from the critiques of identitarian politics of terror and various social practices of resistance in this regard, I am specifically concerned with the possibility of emancipatory praxis in the triangle art – theory – activism, which forges a vision/space/subject necessary for socialising/commoning public goods (such as education) through grassroot struggles and social movements."
