Dr Safet HadziMuhamedovic


Waiting for Elijah: Time and Encounter in a Bosnian Landscape, Safet HadziMuhamedovic, book cover

Before attaining a doctoral degree in Social Anthropology from Goldsmiths, University of London and an MPhil degree in Social Anthropology from the University of Cambridge, I have received BA degrees in History of Art and Sociology from the University of Sarajevo and Kenyon College. 

I have received various research grants and awards, most recently as the Civil Society Scholar of the Open Society Foundations. From 2010 to 2014, I contributed to a large ERC-funded project Bosnian Bones, Spanish Ghosts: 'Transitional Justice' and the Legal Shaping of Memory after Two Modern Conflicts, led by Dr Sari Wastell and based at Goldsmiths.

At the moment, I am conducting preliminary investigations and setting up a fieldwork location in Popovo Polje, another stunning karst field in Bosnia. I am looking into the social lives of a sinking river central to the cosmology of a landscape polarised by conflict and divided into two political entities.
