I received my Ph.D. in History from Yale University in 1990. I have been teaching at the University of Nebraska Kearney since 1992 in the fields of Russian, Soviet and East European History. My most recent publications include Natalija: Life in the Balkan Powderkeg, 1880-1956, coedited with Jill Irvine (Central European University Press: Budapest, 2011 (paperback ed)) and "Right -wing Leaders in Serbia" with Jill Irvine, in Women of the Right: Comparisons and Exchanges across National Borders, Kathleen Blee and Sandra Deutsch eds., (Penn State University Press, 2012). My current research focuses on cemeteries and gravemarkers in the former Yugoslavia as sites of national identity and ethnic conflict.
