Catherine Baker is Senior Lecturer in 20th Century History at the University of Hull. She has been researching the politics of nationalism, media and popular culture in the post-Yugoslav region since her doctoral research on popular music and narratives of identity in Croatia in 1991 (PhD University College London, School of Slavonic and East European Studies, 2008). She also studies the everyday politics of peacekeeping and peacebuilding. Her book Race and the Yugoslav Region: Postsocialist, Post-Conflict, Postcolonial?, Manchester: Manchester University Press, 2018, revisits these and other topics to situate them within the global politics of race.
The third edition of GSG Magazine explores the contemporary use of historical narratives and cultural artifacts, and the ideology of heritage and cultural (re)production to reveal and resist forms of inequality and violence.
