Safet Hadžimuhamedović

PhD Candidate and Research Assistant (BiH)

Safet is currently studying towards a doctoral degree in anthropology at Goldsmiths, University of London under the auspices of the Bosnian Bones, Spanish Ghosts project. His research attempts to understand the ‘lived histories’ of Bosnia as conveyed through the cultural processes of shared landscape. This approach is juxtaposed to the hegemonic system produced by the 20th century identity politics tailored along ‘ethnic’ and ‘religious’ lines. Safet has an MPhil degree in anthropology from the University of Cambridge, BA degrees in history of art and sociology from the University of Sarajevo and studies at Kenyon College. His doctoral work at Goldsmiths is supervised by Dr Sari Wastell and Dr Frances Pine.


Suzana Narotsky 

Senior Research Consultant (Spain) 

Zahira Araguete-Toribios

PhD Candidate and Research Assistant (Spain)

Zahira's research explores different forms of scientific, historical and social identification endeavors in connection to the exhumation of the bodies of the Spanish Civil War and postwar dead, in the southwestern region of Extremadura. Focusing on notions of evidence production, she studies the role that material remains, bodies and oral accounts play in the construction of different sociopolitical claims about the repressive past. Moreover, I she examines the exhumations of unmarked graves in relation to the meaning they attain for different family collectives, associations, historians and archaeological teams and in the context of wider practices of mourning, commemoration and war remembrance.
