Mila Dragojević is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Politics at Sewanee: The University of the South. She received her Ph.D. from Brown University. One area of her research is driven by questions about the conditions under which cultural traits become foundations of politicized collective identities, and when they become associated with inter-group conflict. Her previous research has been published in Ethnic and Racial Studies and Nationalities Papers. She is completing her book manuscript The Politics of Social Ties: Newcomers in an Ethnic Homeland, examining identity formation and political mobilization among former refugees in Serbia. She received an ACA (Appalachian College Association) Faculty Fellowship for the academic year 2013-14 to conduct the field research in Croatia on violence against civilians and post-conflict reconciliation.
