Currently working at the Leibniz-Institute for East and Southeast European Studies in Regensburg, Germany, I write about 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. My latest 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 on Croatian minority (language) activism in Vojvodina, Serbia and the politics of academic networks in Croatia and Serbia.
