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).  In August 2014, I won the Pratt-Heins Foundation Service Award.  My current research focuses on cemeteries and gravemarkers in the former Yugoslavia as sites of national identity and ethnic conflict.
