MemberAndrew John Hodges

I am a social and linguistic anthropologist interested in the anthropology of work and leisure. My current project examines the impact of a shipyard (Uljanik, Pula) on work, leisure and sub-cultural activities (especially on fan and punk subcultures) in and around the city of Pula. I have also written extensively on football fans in Zagreb Croatia, interpreting their engagements as subculture and social movement. To date I have written about left wing/antifascist fan initiatives (White Angels Zagreb), and progressive initiatives among GNK Dinamo Zagreb’s Bad Blue Boys. I have just completed a book on this research.  I have also written on Croatian minority (language) activism in Vojvodina, Serbia and the politics of academic networks in Croatia and Serbia.   Please feel free to contact me by email if you have any questions about my work.
