Over the course of my career as a social anthropologist, I have published on a wide range of topics, all relating to the former Yugoslavia – especially Serbia and Croatia. Links to copies of the vast majority of my publications are available below, organized by theme. A full publications list is available here:
I significantly improved my editorial skills through guest-editing (including copy-editing of non-native English speaker contributions) the following special issue of the journal Soccer & Society: Fan Protest and Activism: Football from below in South-Eastern Europe (Guest Co-Editor – Dario Brentin).
(1) Sociology of sport
In 2018 I published the book Fan Activism, Protest and Politics: Ultras in Post-socialist Croatia (Routledge). My work focuses on the political engagements of football fans.
I have also published the following journal articles on this topic:

(3) Labour studies
I have written about astrophysicists in Croatia and Serbia as academic workers, and about shipbuilding in Croatia (Pula – Uljanik). My most recent work is concerned with shipyard workers’ narratives of “transformation”, the management of the shipyard, and the currently unfolding crisis in Croatian shipbuilding.
I published the ebook Cosmologies in Transition: Science and the Politics of Academia after Yugoslavia with a press from Montenegro on my work with astrophysicists.
