Alannah’s thesis, entitled ‘Remembering Dismemberment: The Politics of Memory in Bosnia and Herzegovina’ examines the politics of memory in Bosnia after the Yugoslav wars. Focusing on three Bosnian cities, it explores the politicisation of ethnic identities and the ways in which the respective populations remember the war.

Congratulations to Alannah!
